Baltimore, February 14, 2011. Art Media Agency (WADA).

The director of the Walters Art Museum Gary Vikan, announced that Dr. Regine Schulz, Director International Affairs and curatorial curator of ancient art at the Walters since 2000, has been named executive director of Roemer and Pelizaeus Museum (FMM) in Hildesheim Germany. Schulz, who will assume his role in the fall, will succeed Dr. Katja Lembke, who was recently appointed director of the Landesmuseum in Lower Saxony in Hanover.

Schulz arrived at the Walters a decade ago as the first Egyptologist of the museum since 1940 and the first to complete a curatorial position in ancient art by the Mellon Foundation. During his years at the Walters, Schulz commissioned several important exhibitions, including "Eternal Egypt and Faces of Ancient Arabia" and a dozen exhibitions centered. More recently, she co-commissioned "Heroes: Myths and Mortals in Ancient Greece," which ended its 15-month national tour at the Onassis Cultural Center in New York in January.

In addition to many articles on objects from the collection of the Walters, Schulz published the first guide of the museum's Egyptian assets, Heroes: Myths and Mortals in Ancient Greece and cataloged its collection of ancient scarabs and amulets. Schulz is currently working on "Secrets of the Universe: The Egyptian Book of the Fayum," an exhibition of international loans, thanks to his new role, will be co-organized by the Walters and the RPM. Throughout his career at the Walters, Schulz remained active as a teacher at John Hopkins University and the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich. It has also been involved for many years in leadership positions at the International Council of Museums, and in November, has been elected to its board of directors.

Schulz, who has been engaged in several occupations and with the Roemer Pelizaeus Museum in the 1980s and 1990s, is delighted to return to the museum as executive director after so many years.
