"The Portland Art Museum welcomed prominent artists Carrie Mae Weems and Marie Watt to its Board of Trustees in its virtual annual meeting earlier this month.
“I am so honored and excited that Carrie Mae Weems and Marie Watt accepted our invitation to help lead our institution at this crucial time,” said Brian Ferriso, Director and Chief Curator of the Portland Art Museum. “Our communities need the arts more than ever, and it is vital to have the wisdom of these consequential artists who have both contributed so much and in so many ways to our lives.”
Watt and Weems are among nine new or returning trustees joining the Museum’s 70-member Board of Trustees. The role of the Board of Trustees is to lead in the governance of the institution, including budget approval and oversight of the Museum’s finances and assets, hiring and evaluating the performance of the Executive Director, and serving on subcommittees overseeing the areas such as the Museum’s collections, development, equity and inclusion, finances and investments, learning and community partnerships."
