This accession consists of records created and maintained by the Office of the Director during the tenure of Richard Koshalek, Director, 2009-2013. Many of the records document the seven priorities outlined by Koshalek when he first arrived at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (HMSG): a fundamental commitment to research; an emphasis on thematic content; and updated approach to collecting and conserving; a new level of connectivity; an artist's presence throughout the museum; opening the doors to collaboration; and curating the museum as a unified public space. Major topics documented in this accession include the Seasonal Inflatable Structure (commonly known as the "Bubble"), the Center for Creative Dialogue, the YOUmedia Center, redesign of the bookstore, development of a new visual identity, exhibitions, development, conference planning, and Koshalek's vision for the future of the museum. Materials include correspondence, planning documents, presentations, meeting materials, press clippings, studies, reports, architectural drawings, promotional materials, white papers, proposals, images, notes, invitations, brochures, stationary, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.
