The Baltimore Museum of Art has appointed seven new trustees to its board, including the artist Adam Pendleton along with Heidi Berghuis, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, Brooke Lierman, David H. Milton, Scott Schelle, and Wilma Bulkin Siegel.
Pendleton is a New York-based artist known for work that questions the inter-related concepts of language, politics, and identity. His work is currently on view in the Baltimore Museum’s Front Gallery—in the form of paintings, collages, screen prints, and large-scale wall works—and is in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and Tate Modern in London, among others. The other appointees joining him on the board include figures prominent in the worlds of business, politics, art, and design around Baltimore and nearby Washington, D.C.
In a statement, the Baltimore Museum’s director, Christopher Bedford, said, “This is an exciting time to participate on the BMA’s board of trustees as we embark on creating a new strategic vision for the next five years. These new trustees have joined a group that is passionate about art and seeing how it can serve the community in Baltimore City and beyond.”
