WORCESTER, MASS.- The Worcester Art Museum
announced the appointment of Nora Maroulis as its new Director of Philanthropy. Recognized for her experience and accomplishments in high level non-profit management, fundraising, institutional planning, board development, and strategic positioning, Maroulis currently serves as the Deputy Director for External Affairs at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts. She will assume her new position January 2014.
I am very pleased that Nora is joining our team, said WAM Director Matthias Waschek. Her experience at a wide variety of cultural institutions will undoubtedly help the Museum in this exciting time, as we look forward to the incorporation of the Higgins Armory and continue toward our goal of increased accessibility and the growth of our base of financial support.
Maroulis began her career at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and prior to her work at deCordova, helped lead fundraising and marketing efforts at the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution; the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.

I am thrilled to be joining the Worcester Art Museum at this pivotal time in its organizational life, Maroulis said. The Museum is an art historical treasure trove, a vibrant reflection of Worcesters rich history and bright future, and a model for what museums can be when they dare to take risks. The excitement is palpable; I look forward to being a part of it, and working with a talented team to help realize the Museums goals.
