“Since I started in January, we have been building the extraordinary physical structure of the Lucas Museum,” said Sandra Jackson-Dumont, director and CEO of the Lucas Museum. “We have also been building the leadership structure that will shape the programs, policies, and practices of this unprecedented institution. As we strive to become a vital source of education, inspiration, and dialogue for our close neighbors around Exposition Park, all the communities of Los Angeles, and people around the world, we could not be more thrilled with the team we have been able to recruit, and we are immensely proud to announce. Their varied points-of-view, individual expertise, and combined decades of experience will help us realize our efforts to expand the role of art and museums for society through visual storytelling.”
