Recall that Cole, in 2014 made unfavourable headlines after she opened an exhibition of works from the private collection of family of controversial actor, Bill Cosby. Sadly, the opening of the exhibition titled Conversations coincided with the raging news of the sexual harassment and rape allegations against Cosby.
According to Washington Post, Cole's exit will create "another senior level opening" at the museum.
