The County Museum of Art's search for a new director is being conducted so quietly that many art-scene watchers have wondered if anything is happening. Indeed, the museum is likely to be headless for several months--following former director Earl A. (Rusty) Powell's recent departure for the National Gallery of Art in Washington--but there is action on the search front. At least two candidates have been interviewed for LACMA's top job, according to sources close to the search.

Michael Shapiro, chief curator at the St. Louis Art Museum, is expected to be appointed director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art today after a meeting of the museum's board of trustees. If named to the high-profile position, Shapiro will succeed Earl A. (Rusty) Powell, who resigned in April to become director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington.

The last time the County Museum of Art's trustees went looking for a director, it took 18 months to find a qualified candidate who was willing to come to Los Angeles. After being turned down repeatedly, the trustees finally snagged Earl A. (Rusty) Powell III, a 36-year-old executive curator from the National Gallery of Art in Washington. The board took a chance in hiring an unknown and largely unproven quantity back in 1980.

As the search for a new director of the County Museum of Art goes on behind closed doors, all signs point to the appointment of Michael Shapiro, chief curator of the St. Louis Art Museum. Members of the search committee, including past and present museum presidents, met with senior members of LACMA's administrative and curatorial staff early this week and all but announced Shapiro's selection.
