CHARLOTTEVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia's Fralin Museum of Art has new leadership.

The museum announced Tuesday that John Casteen, president emeritus of the university, will chair the museum's advisory board. He will be joined on the board by his wife, Betsy.

The current co-chairs, Thomas Piper and Elsie Thompson, will become co-vice chairs.

Plans are underway to add a new wing to the museum. Raising funds for the project will be a central focus for John Casteen in his role as chairman.

Casteen served as president of the university from 1990 to 2010.
