San Francisco’s Mexican Museum has named a new leader, Dr. Jonathan Yorba, a jack of all trades.

Yorba, currently, the Arts and Cultural Affairs Director for the City of Riverside, is a trained artist, museologist, scholar, philanthropist and fund developer.

Mayor Gavin Newsom announced Yorba as the chief executive officer after conducting an extensive national search. He will report to work Sept. 15.

The Mexican Museum has an important international collection of over 12,000 artworks, including painting, sculpture, and folk art and represents thousands of years of Mexican art and culture within the Americas. 
The Museum also has an impressive number of rare books and a growing collection of Latin American art.
