Board of Trustees

A diverse group of local and national figures helps guide the Cleveland Museum of Art in support of our mission. Members are elected to these positions in accordance with the museum’s charter and play an integral role in the life of the museum. More than just supporters of the museum, our trustees are community leaders with vested interest in and commitment to the continued growth of the arts in northeastern Ohio.
