head_about.jpgAfter six years, Stuart Chase is stepping down as executive director of the Berkshire Museum. A press release talks of the museum's successful $10.3 million capital campaign, the creation of an acquisitions fund and the building of the Feigenbaum Hall of Innovation during Chase's tenure. The Berkshire Eagle notes that attendance last summer was down, from 25,228 in 2009 to 16,385 in 2010. The Berkshire Museum's staff has also been shrinking, from 28 staffers in 2008 to 21 now.

For now, Maria Mingalone, the museum's director of interpretation, will serve as interim director. A national search has been launched for Chase's replacement.
