SOUTH BEND -

The University of Notre Dame has selected Joseph Antenucci Becherer as director of the Snite Museum of Art on the South Bend campus. Becherer is the founding director and curator of the sculpture program at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The university says, in his new role, Becherer will lead a staff of 16 and oversee exhibition development and educational programs at the museum. He will also play a major role in designing the new Raclin Murphy Museum of Art at Notre Dame, which is scheduled to open in 2021.

"We are thrilled to have someone of Joseph’s artistic vision, talents and operational experience joining our team at Notre Dame," said Maura Ryan, vice president and associate provost for faculty affairs at Notre Dame. "We are confident he will continue and enhance the museum’s role in the University’s vibrant arts district that is taking shape on the southern edge of our campus and includes the Charles B. Hayes Family Sculpture Park, which opened in 2017."

In addition to his duties at Meijer Gardens, Becherer is also a professor of art history at Aquinas College, teaching courses in Renaissance, Baroque, and Contemporary art. Becherer is also not a stranger to Indiana; he earned his doctoral degree from Indiana University.
