LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Hammer Museum announced today the appointment of one new member to its Board of Directors: Linda Janger, and two new members to its Board of Overseers: Glenn Kaino and Dean Valentine.

Board Chair Marcy Carsey said, “At this pivotal moment of growth for the Hammer, I am thrilled to welcome Linda to the museum’s board. She has been a passionate champion of the museum for years, and brings with her a keen understanding of our history as well as our goals as we move forward.”

“I’m delighted that Dean Valentine is returning to the Board of Overseers. His great experience and insight as an adventurous contemporary collector offer an informed perspective during this exciting period,” said Hammer Museum Director Ann Philbin. “Artist Glenn Kaino is also joining the Board of Overseers for the first time, and I’m thrilled that his ideas and talent will be helping to shape the Hammer’s future.” Kaino joins Barbara Kruger and Lari Pittman as artist representatives in this group.

Linda Janger
Linda Janger is a longstanding collector and patron of the arts in Los Angeles. Her involvement with the Hammer dates back to 1998, when she and her late husband, Jerry, first joined the museum as members. Since joining the Hammer’s Board of Overseers as one of its founding members in 2004, Linda has played a significant role in supporting and shaping the Hammer Contemporary Collection. Passionate and knowledgeable collectors, Linda and Jerry made their first gift of art to the Hammer in 2005—a black and white self-portrait photograph by the artist Kiki Smith—and continued to donate works by artists such as Jim Shaw, Mark Hagen, Analia Saban, Yasumasa Morimura, and Raymond Pettibon. In addition to her dedication to the Hammer, Linda has been actively involved with numerous arts institutions across Los Angeles, including LACMA, MOCA, and CalArts, as well as several community and charitable organizations. A graduate of UCLA, who resides in Westwood, Linda is also the founder of Pace Properties, a real estate business she has led for nearly 30 years. She has three children and four grandchildren.

He previously served as President of Walt Disney Television and the UPN network. Dean first served as a member of the Hammer Board of Overseers from 2007 to 2012. Over the last decade, Dean and his wife Amy Adelson, an independent film and television producer, have made major gifts to the Hammer Contemporary Collection. Dean and Amy’s important gift of sculpture was showcased in the 2009 exhibition Second Nature: The Valentine-Adelson Collection at the Hammer.
