Catherine Marcus and Will Rose have given the Dallas Museum of Art in Texas a $3 million gift. Their funds will endow the museum’s deputy director position, which is currently held by Tamara Wootton Forsyth.
Marcus serves as president of the museum’s board of trustees, and Will Rose serves on the DMA’s investment committee. Forsyth was promoted to deputy director this past February after having served in various roles at the Texan institution, including associate director of collections, exhibitions, and facilities management.
In a joint statement, Marcus and Rose wrote, “Strong leadership is critical to the vigor and growth of our city’s Museum. We are thrilled to support the Museum’s endowment and this crucial leadership position. We are especially delighted to support Tamara Wootton Forsyth in this role. She is a wonderful complement to Agustín Arteaga, the Eugene McDermott Director, and we know she will continue to distinguish the DMA with her dedication to virtually every aspect of the Museum.”
