In the latest episode of museum director musical chairs, Deborah Gribbon has been appointed interim director of the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Gribbon headed the J. Paul Getty Museum from 2000 to 2004 and resigned over differences with Getty Trust President Barry Munitz, who was forced out two years later. Gribbon has agreed to lead the Cleveland institution for about a year while it searches for a successor to director Timothy Rub, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Rub is ending his three-year tenure to take charge of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, succeeding its longtime director, Anne d'Harnoncourt, who died last year.
