David Brenneman

We’re sitting on a goldmine [at the IU Art Museum]. Our collections are broad, encyclopedic, very deep, and in certain cases they are absolutely exceptional.

David Brenneman came to Indiana University after serving as director of collections and exhibitions at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

His many accomplishments during his more than 20 years in the art museum field include leading the Louvre Atlanta project, a three-year series of exhibitions and programs from the Musée du Louvre in Paris that attracted more than a million visitors.

Dr. Brenneman was managing curator of such high-profile loan exhibitions as “Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis” and “Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting.”
