Melissa Chiu, director of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Shortly after she took the role of director of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Melissa Chiu was under fire for holding museum fundraisers in New York instead of Washington. Nearly three years since starting, she’s coming off her biggest success yet, a furiously popular exhibition of Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Mirrors.” Chiu talks to Kojo about access to the arts and how politics are becoming an even bigger part of what artists are doing.
