TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Sam Sweet served as executive director at the Delaware Art Museum for three and a half years

The Delaware Art Museum’s executive director Sam Sweet has left the post, the museum announced last night.

 
Chief Operating Officer Molly Giordano, a ten-year veteran of the museum, was named interim executive director, board of trustees president Annie Woolard-Provine said in a letter to museum supporters.
 
Sweet joined the Rockford Park institution in July 2016, after a challenging period for the museum when financial difficulties tied to a significant expansion and the Great Recession forced the sale of art work, bringing national attention in the close-knit art world.
 
 
 
Woolard-Provine’s letter said Sweet “recently left the museum to pursue other opportunities.”  She also said 2020 would be a “particularly transformative year” for the museum, including a “radical” redesign of the first floor galleries, a new logo and website and planned improvements to the museum’s front entrance on Kentmere Parkway.  The museum will also host a major Tiffany exhibition beginning in October.
 
Giordano has held multiple roles at the museum including leading marketing, communications and development and earlier in her career worked for Governor Jack Markell.  Woolard-Provine said the board was “thrilled that Molly, along with our dedicated staff and volunteers, will continue the Museum’s current strategic direction.”
