Comings and goings


The long-time executive director of Fleisher Art Memorial, Thora Jacobson, is leaving there in late February to serve as chief operating officer of Philagrafika, the Philadelphia Print Collaborative’s project to explore the widespread impact of print media on art.

Jacobson has been at Fleisher for 33 years, and has served as director since 1983. She will be leaving Feb. 25. Here’s the press release.

And Philadelphia Inquirer Fine Arts Editor Jeff Weinstein (as opposed to pop culture editor), is leaving at the end of February for Bloomberg News in New York, where he will be editing arts and culture. The move is more about his personal life–his partner is in New York–than about wanting to leave the Inquirer, he said. And he seemed certain that he would be replaced.
