Elizabeth Ann MacGregor (Scottish-Australian art museum director)

* Elizabeth Ann (AKA Liz Ann) MacGregor is the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Sydney, Australia (located at Circular Quay overlooking the Sydney Opera House).

MacGregor started her career in the arts by training as an art historian at Edinburgh University before joining the Arts Council of Great Britain in 1985. In 1989 she was appointed director of the Ikon Gallery, a contemporary arts institution in Birmingham.

In 1999, she took up the directorship of the MCA, introducing free admission and subsequently doubling attendance numbers. She also oversaw the redevelopment of the MCA building, increasing its size and internationalising the scope of exhibitions.

MacGregor's chart shows enormous personal drive: both luminaries in Aries; Scorpio Ascendant ruled by Pluto in the last degree of dramatic Leo on a workaholic Virgo MC: "She is known for her determination, tenacious work ethic and colourful wardrobe."
