After 37 years at the Toledo Museum of Art, Carolyn Putney has retired to take time to focus on the travel business she owns with her husband, Dr. Richard Putney, an art history professor at the University of Toledo. At the museum, she was in charge of acquiring and interpreting Asian works of art, and was an administrator for the curatorial area. She also plans to work as a private curator for a Toledo family.
