MILWAUKEE, WIS.- The Milwaukee Art Museum announces that Joel Quadracci has been appointed president of the institution’s Board of Trustees.

Joel Quadracci has served as a Board Trustee since 2014 and, along with the Harry V. Quadracci family, has been a part of the Windhover Foundation, a major donor to the Museum.

“We are incredibly grateful that Joel has deepened his already considerable involvement with the Museum,” said Marcelle Polednik, PhD, Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director, Milwaukee Art Museum. “Joel’s keen understanding of the Museum’s connection to people’s lives and the community and his business acumen are invaluable, especially as we undertake the strategic planning process.”

The Quadracci family has supported the Museum for decades, including leading the efforts for the Calatrava-designed expansion of the Museum in 2001, named after the Quadracci family, as well as participating in Friends of Art, a volunteer support organization of the Museum.

“The Museum is a significant cultural institution, and when I look at its legacy, I am amazed at what we have achieved: an incredible foundation on which we can build a remarkable and sustainable future,” said Joel Quadracci. Investing in the arts and art education is so important to community vitality and the overall quality of life here. It is my honor and privilege to deepen my involvement by taking on this position.”

Quadracci officially began his role as President after the Board of Trustee voted unanimously in favor in October 2018. Don Layden Jr., the previous president of the Milwaukee Art Museum board, from 2015 to 2018, remains the chairman of the Milwaukee Art Museum Board of Trustees.

Quadracci is the Chairman, President and CEO of Quad/Graphics. He is responsible for the overall strategic growth of the company, which was founded in 1971 by his father, the late Harry V. Quadracci. Joel joined Quad/Graphics in 1991, holding various roles before becoming President and CEO in 2006, and Chairman in 2010.
