SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – The New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors is looking for a new leader.

The New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs announced Monday a search committee has opened applications for a successor to former executive director Frances Levine.

In March, Levine left to take over the reins at the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis.

The director is an appointee of the New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and is hired by the Secretary of Cultural Affairs.

Officials say the position requires a seasoned professional with a track record of successful leadership of a multidisciplinary museum organization. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
