Robert Wolterstorff, an art historian who is the museum's executive director, said the years Avery spent in Vermont were seminal to his maturity as an artist - and key to the public and critical recognition of his talent.

"Certainly, it is not exaggerating to say that Avery became the Avery we know and recognize during precisely the time he was coming to Vermont," Wolterstorff said.

Then Robert Wolterstorff was hired as the museum's new director in the summer of 2012 after a yearlong national search. Wolterstorff, who had led the acclaimed Victoria Mansion in Portland, Maine, was seeking a new challenge, and Vermont seemed the perfect place to realize it.

"Being in Portland for 13 years, there are not many other places I could live," Wolterstorff said. "I lived in this area for two years when I was in graduate school at Williams College and fell in love with Vermont.
"I love the landscape and the incredible cultural riches of the area," he added. "There is a discerning audience here, and I wanted to make a contribution."
Wolterstorff brought 20 years in arts and museum leadership to Vermont. He holds a master's degree in art history from Williams and a master of fine arts and doctorate from Princeton University, where he wrote his dissertation on the 18th century neoclassical architect Robert Adam.
Before his tenure in Portland, he had served as director of the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion in Philadelphia and held curatorial and research positions in the Philadelphia Museum of Art and at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williams College Museum of Art, and the Chapin Rare Book Library. (The latter three are all in Williamstown, Mass.)
Wolterstorff's background served him well as he worked with the Bennington Museum's trustees to develop a vision for its future. Although the direction was fresh, Wolterstorff said the changes he's pursued at the museum are really a matter of unearthing what was always here in Vermont. "The Bennington Museum's collections are particularly strong in the 18th and 19th century, and they have the defining collection of the work of Grandma Moses," Wolterstorff said. "We are building on those strengths.
"That painting came directly off of her wall as an offering to this gallery," Wolterstorff said. While leading a media tour of the galleries, he explained that one of the museum's new initiatives is to open doors and find ways for the Bennington College students to participate in the museum for academic credit.
"In less than a year on the job, Mariko has been fantastic in her outreach throughout Vermont," Wolterstorff said.
Wolterstorff added that the reinstallation of items from the museum's permanent collection items has helped to explain the causes and effects of the wealth made possible by Vermont's once-booming mill towns.
"What you see are trappings of wealth created by a vibrant business environment," Wolterstorff said.
Wolterstorff "has been great in supporting my curatorial ideas," Franklin said.
By encouraging me to follow my instincts, Robert is allowing us to create much richer shows."
The compare and contrast of "Neel/Field" is an example of what Wolterstorff calls "creative collisions" - in which two supposedly dissimilar subject matters are brought together to demonstrate their connection and relevance in a way that can be both instructive and pleasing. "By introducing the works of a mid-century modern artist alongside those already in our permanent collection, we're taking two giant steps," Wolterstorff said.
