The Tampa Museum of Art has hired Sherry Stepleton as director of marketing and communications.
Stepleton joins the museum from the Tucson Museum of Art, where she was director of marketing and public relations since 1997.
"Sherry brings solid marketing and public relations expertise to this new position," said Emily Kass, museum director. "I am looking forward to her joining our management team as we solidify our plans for the new Tampa Museum of Art."
Stepleton begins work at the museum on Jan. 18. Groundbreaking for a new, larger art museum is scheduled for March.
