The Telfair Museums’ Board of Trustees announced today the appointment of Robert “Bob” Faircloth as its new Acting Director.
"Faircloth, a well-respected area philanthropist, has been involved as a volunteer and a board member with Telfair for more than two decades, since 1997. Currently, Faircloth serves on the organization’s Executive Committee," a Telfair spokesperson says.
In a move that came as a surprise to some observers, on May 13, Robin Nicholson resigned from his position as Telfair’s Executive Director/CEO. Telfair’s Board of Trustees is forming a search committee to appoint the museum's next Executive Director/CEO.
"Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Telfair closed its three sites in mid March to ensure the safety of visitors and staff, but the museum has remained connected to the community with the launch of Telfair Today, an online hub featuring virtual exhibition tours, art and outreach activities, news stories, artist interviews, and more," the Museums say.
