Marc Pachter, fl?neur, former museum director, travels the world, living up to two months in places that interest him. He prefers sprawling, messy cities like LA and Berlin to beautiful self-regarding ones like SF and Paris. When he last worked, through January 2008, Pachter was Director of the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, where he presided over the rebirth of a 160 year old building and reimagined his museum. He “saved” George Washington, that is, his greatest portrayal by Gilbert Stuart. Unruly in spirit, Pachter nevertheless surprised himself by serving for thirty three years as a cultural bureaucrat, and surprised the Smithsonian by finishing his career on the Colbert Report.
