Primary Source: What the MAC's staff thinks about Forrest Rodgers, and how he responded to the board

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 at 9:02 AM

This week’s Inlander dives behind the scenes of the Museum of Arts and Culture where, over a year after Executive Director Forrest Rodgers was rehired, things are still very rocky. Some staff members say there’s very low morale, and they lay a lot of the blame at Rodgers.

A recent state investigation that cleared Rodgers of accusations of gender discrimination and illegal retaliation, but ended with a devastating critique of the impact his leadership has had on the MAC.

Yet, in a limited space, it would have been impossible to include every complaint the staff directed at Rodgers or Rodgers response to every complaint. So we’ve done the next best thing: We’ve posted the investigation below, then posted Forrest Rodgers’ letter to the board in response to the investigation.

Feel free to browse through the entire investigation and read Rodgers’ letter to the board, and determine for yourself whether Rodgers has been good for the museum, whether the staff were justified in their complaints and whether the Inlander fairly portrayed both sides.
