Claire Orologas appointed Executive Director of Polk Museum of Art
Art and education have been the cornerstones of Claire’s distinguished career.

LAKELAND, FL.- Opportunity Resources Inc. announced that Claire Orologas has been chosen by the Board of Trustees of the Polk Museum of Art as its next Executive Director. Claire will begin at the Polk Museum on February 1, 2012.

Art and education have been the cornerstones of Claire’s distinguished career. For the past 11 years she has held increasingly responsible positions with the Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution’s Asian art museum in Washington, D.C., where she is presently Head of Education and Public Programs.

“I have been extremely impressed with the dedication of the staff and Board at Polk Museum of Art,” Claire said. “I look forward to working with them and the citizens of Polk County to advance the goals of this wonderful institution, and to maximize its role as a Smithsonian Affiliate museum.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Claire to the Polk Museum of Art,” said Weymon Snuggs, president of the Board of Trustees. “She brings a wealth of experience in art and education, and she is a strong advocate of the civic responsibilities of museums. We are excited by the contributions she will make to our museum and our community.”

The Polk Museum of Art has grown to become one of Florida’s top ten museums and was designated a Smithsonian affiliate in 2010, under previous Director Dan Stetson. The Museum’s collections range from Pre-Columbian to contemporary art and photography. The Polk Museum’s exceptional commitment to innovative art education is well-known and highly regarded in the museum world.

Opportunity Resources Inc. was hired by the Polk Museum of Art Board of Trustees to conduct the search.
