BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Deborah Mullin of Pound Ridge will become president of the board of trustees at the Katonah Museum of Art beginning July 1.
“The KMA is an essential resource for this community,” says Mullin, “I am enormously proud to begin my tenure as president, and to advance the KMA’s special role in engaging visitors in thought-provoking concepts and artwork.”
“We couldn’t be happier with Deborah’s appointment at this auspicious moment in the Museum’s history, especially with a new strategic plan and dynamic new additions to our staff,” says Darsie Alexander, executive director of the Katonah Museum of Art.
