More than two years after the removal of its previous controversial director, the Museum of Contemporary Art-North Miami has named a well-known Miami arts executive to lead the museum.

Chana Budgazad Sheldon, best known locally for her eight-year tenure as executive director of alternative arts space Locust Projects, will take over this week as MOCA-North Miami’s executive director.
