An assistant to the curator of the Southern Art Conservation in New Orleans was named Thursday as the new executive director of the Kansas African American Museum.

L’Oral Evans Birden, who also sits on the board of directors of two New Orleans art institutions, is scheduled to assume leadership of the nonprofit organization later this month.

Birden holds a master’s degree in museum studies from Southern University in New Orleans, and has extensive experience in museum administration, programming and artifact conservation, according to the museum’s board of directors.

The museum at 601 N. Water St. is dedicated to identifying, acquiring and preserving documents that are reflective of African American life and culture.
