The Speed Art Museum board of trustees has elected three top Speed leaders to share interim director duties during the museum’s executive director search. 

Chief Operating Officer Lisa Resnick, Chief Financial Officer David Knopf and Scott Erbes, the museum’s director of collections and exhibitions and curator of decorative arts and design, have been named co-interim directors and will lead the museum during its three-year expansion and renovation project. Resnick will chair the leadership team. 

Former director Charles Venable announced his resignation last month to move to Indianapolis, where he will become CEO and director of the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Venable’s last day at the Speed will be September 23, which is also the last day the Speed’s galleries will be open to the public before closing for construction. 

Board chair Todd Lowe will chair the search committee.
