Raymond R. Krueger Named Board President at the Milwaukee Art Museum

MILWAUKEE, WI.- The Milwaukee Art Museum held its Members’ Annual Meeting on Monday, May 18, along with its largest support group, Friends of Art (FOA). Two new officers and seven new trustees were elected at the meeting.

Raymond R. Krueger was elected President of the Museum’s Board of Trustees. Ray Krueger has been Chairman of the Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation in Abiquiú, New Mexico, for 19 years and is Chairman of the Milwaukee River Revitalization Council. He is Attorney at Law with the Land and Resources Group at the Milwaukee firm Michael Best & Friedrich LLP. Krueger also chairs the Museum’s Public Affairs special committee.

He succeeds W. Kent Velde, who has served as the Board’s President as well as its Treasurer and was elected Chair at the meeting. Kent Velde has served on the boards of the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center, the Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and the United Way of Greater Milwaukee. He is the President of Lakeview Equity Partners, LLC, a private equity fund based in Milwaukee.

Velde succeeds Sheldon B. Lubar, who served four years as Chair and remains as a member of the Museum’s Finance Committee. He steps down after successfully leading the campaign to retire the Museum’s final construction debts on the internationally renowned, Santiago Calatrava–designed Quadracci Pavilion, erasing the debt eight months ahead of schedule. Prior to serving as Chair, Lubar was Board President in 2005 and 2006, as well as from 1977–1980.

Seven new Trustees were elected to three-year terms at the meeting: Christopher S. Abele, Randy Bryant, Stephen Einhorn, Anthony S. Krausen, Joan Lubar, Richard L. Schmidt, Jr., and Frederick Vogel IV.

The following Friends of Art members received special recognition at this year’s FOA annual meeting:
