Walker Art Center exec. director steps down

"She led the organization through a major capital campaign to fund the vision and re-design of our entire campus, including the new Minneapolis Sculpture Garden".

Viso's tenure at the museum saw the completion of a $75-million capital campaign, an enlarged budget, and a series of acclaimed exhibitions, among them a 2017 Merce Cunningham survey (in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago), a 2015 survey of worldwide Pop art, and a version of a traveling Jack Whitten retrospective. The museum's board has now established what it is calling an Office of the Executive Director that will fulfill Viso's duties while the museum searches for a new director.

"I think we very much regret the pain and suffering the work is causing in our local community", Viso said.

Those accomplishments include the 2016-2017 reconstruction of the 11-acre Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, operated in cooperation with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. One depicted the 1862 "Mankato Massacre", in which 38 Dakota men were executed, making it the largest mass execution in US history. Eventually the Walker relented and removed the sculpture.

The controversy awkwardly coincided with the opening of a retrospective on the expatriate sculptor Jimmie Durham, whose claims to be of Cherokee descent are disputed by tribe members. The daughter of Cuban immigrants, Viso served as an advisor on a survey of post-revolution Cuban art, "Adios Utopia: Drams and Deceptions in Cuban Art Since 1950", that opened at the museum earlier this month.

In a statement, the Walker said its board and Viso "agreed that now is an ideal time for a transition".
