New Curator: J. Keith Wilson, associate curator of Chinese Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, has been appointed curator of the Far Eastern Art Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Wilson, a specialist in early Chinese bronzes, jades and ceramics, will succeed George Kuwayama, who is retiring in July. During his 37-year tenure at the museum, Kuwayama has mounted more than 80 exhibitions of Asian art and organized LAMCA's Far Eastern Art Council, a 200-member support group.
