"Development is a critical component of the work of the museum, now as ever," said James Cuno, President and Eloise W. Martin Director of the Art Institute. "We are thrilled to be welcoming Elizabeth Hurley to this position. Elizabeth brings both vision and extensive experience to the museum, and her initiatives will be of the greatest importance to the future of the museum. Her deep roots in Chicago's top-tier cultural organizations and her national fundraising experience are the perfect combination for the Art Institute, and we look forward to Elizabeth's expertise and ideas as we forge ahead into 2011."
