As we take a moment to reflect at the end of the year, I wanted to thank you for your service to Columbus Rotary. Your time and treasure are important to us regardless the amount or size.
A fine clock has an intricate mechanism to maintain the clock's operation. You see the face, the hands, and perhaps a day, date, sun or moon, but you don't see everything. Like that clock, it takes many pieces to make an organization like ours move in the right direction. Thank you for all that you have done to make that happen. I look forward to working with you as we finish off the second half of our Rotary year together!
"The new Margaret M. Walter Wing at CMA" Nannette Maciejunes, Executive Director, Columbus Museum of Art
Nannette V. Maciejunes has served as Executive Director of the Columbus Museum of Art since November 2003. She is a graduate of both Stanford’s Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders and the Getty’s Leadership Institute for Museum Management (MMI). In 2006, Nannette received the Ohio Governor’s Award for the Arts in the category of Arts Administration and the South Side Settlement House Spirit of Volunteerism Award. In 2009, Nannette was named a YWCA Woman of Achievement. Recently, Nannette was named a 2015 Columbus Business First C-Suite Award Honoree.
Under Nannette’s leadership, the Museum adopted and implemented the mission to create great experiences with great art for everyone. She was instrumental in CMA’s acquisition of ThePhoto League collection and the Philip J. and Suzanne Schiller Collection of American Social Commentary Art, 1930-1970, which is considered to be the most important collection of its kind. In 2011, CMA opened the Center for Creativity, an innovative new space which demonstrates the Museum’s leadership in the field of the visitor-centered museum experience and commitment to creativity. In 2013, the Museum was awarded the Institute of Library and Museum Services’ National Medal, the Nation’s highest honor for museums. Nannette spearheaded the largest and most successful endowment and capital campaign in CMA’s history. In October 2015, the Museum completed its major renovation and expansion, which included the renovation of the historic 1931 building and the addition of a new 50,000 sq. ft. wing and sculpture garden.
