When she volunteered at the Menil Collection after college, Rebecca Rabinow had no idea she'd be back to run the place nearly 30 years later. She returns to the museum after a 26-year career in New York as one of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's lead curators. Less than a month into her new role, Rabinow talks about getting re-acquainted with Houston, her plans as the museum's new director, and an old friendship with another well-known museum director in town.
