The Wichita Art Museum did not look far for its new director.

The museum announced Tuesday that Wichita State University's Patricia McDonnell will replace Charles Steiner as director.

McDonnell currently is director of Wichita State's Ulrich Museum of Art. Her new position is effective Aug. 20.

McDonnell will be allowed to finish work on some Ulrich projects, including a gallery renovation and the museum's reopening after being closed for nine months.

She was hired as director of the Ulrich in 2007. Before that, she was chief curator at the Tacoma Art Museum in Tacoma, Wash., and curator of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
