Wexner CuratorsChristopher Bedford, left, with Wexner Center Senior Curator of Exhibitions, Catharina Manchanda, at the opening party for Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms

As has been mentioned several places, Christopher Bedford is a new Exhibitions Curator at the Wexner Center, and this week marks his *official* start, and we couldn't be happier. (This only adds to our happiness since Senior Curator Catharina Manchanda began in July.) Huzzah! A hearty welcome to Christopher and his family as they acclimate from balmy Southern California to slightly less balmy and football-mad Columbus. And speaking of sport, here's a great review from The Washington Post of an exhibition, Hard Targets: Masculinity and Sport, which Christopher curated and is currently on view at LACMA.
