Walker Art Center Names New Chief Curator: Henriette Huldisch has been named chief curator and director of curatorial affairs at the Walker Art Center, effective January 6. She joins the center from her current role as director of exhibitions and curator at the MIT List Visual Arts Center in Boston. This marks the first major hire for Walker executive director Mary Ceruti, who came on board just a year ago. Ceruti told TCB the curator position has long been vacant; hiring Huldisch is part of her plan to build out a leadership team.

Minnesota Job Vacancies Increase in Q2: Minnesota employers reported having a total of 146,513 job vacancies in 2019’s second quarter, according to a survey conducted by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). The figure marked the highest total on record, according to the agency. DEED also found that there were 0.9 unemployed individuals for each opening, which serves as evidence of the much-discussed tight labor market. But the numbers also show that the labor market has improved from last year and may be leveling out.
