Ballinger Round

Jim Ballinger, Phoenix Art MuseumPhoenix Art Museum director Jim Ballinger is retiring. Here’s what notable locals have to say about his 33-year tenure.

“If you had to name the pillars on which today’s Phoenix is built, Jim Ballinger would be a major one. With consummate skill, artistic acumen and irrepressible energy, he has built a first-class art museum, one that is uniquely ours. It was never easy. But, whether he was chiding the city for not watering the grass or impressing a major donor, Jim knew his target and hit the mark. Most important over an extraordinary career, he never stopped reaching for more and better, his vision exceeding even his most optimistic supporters. And nine times in ten he got what only he considered possible. If institutions were to look like their most important contributors, the Phoenix Art Museum would be long, lanky and dark haired, the shape of a never-satisfied Jim Ballinger.”                                
    – Terry Goddard, former Arizona Attorney General
