The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art is proud to announce that it has selected Leann Standish as its new Executive Director.
Leann, who has deep experience in nonprofit and arts administration, has served as the Executive Director of the San Luis Obispo Foundation for the Performing Arts Center for nearly four years. She brings a compelling vision to SLOMA to build an open and accessible home for diverse audiences; a true celebration of creative expression. She is particularly excited about bringing in art and artists from outside the San Luis Obispo community to complement and collaborate with the area’s existing creatives.
“The Museum’s board is very excited to welcome Leann,” said Charles Feltman, President of the SLOMA Board of Directors. “Her passion for connecting people through the arts is well demonstrated throughout her career. With her background we believe she will provide the leadership to help us chart the best course forward for our mission of providing and promoting diverse arts experiences.”
Leann has spent her entire career in arts management including leadership roles at the Perez Art Museum in Miami, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and the Fresno Metropolitan Museum.
