The Los Angeles County Museum of Art announced two new chairs for its board of trustees–Antony P. Ressler, who has served on the board since 2005, and Elaine P. Wynn, a trustee since 2011. The museum is currently planning out the creation of a new building to replace four “aging facilities” on the museum’s east campus, to quote the press release.
In a joint statement, Ressler and Wynn said, “LACMA is a museum of international renown as well as a gathering place of great value to so many people here in Los Angeles. We are grateful to LACMA’s board for their support of this institution, and for the faith they have put in us as we take on this responsibility and opportunity.”
They replace former co-chairs Andy Gordon and Terry Semel, whose tenure saw an expansion of the museum’s collection and its square footage, along with the installation of several public artworks by artists including Chris Burden and Tony Smith.
