NEW YORK, NY.- The American Folk Art Museum announced the election of art historian Elizabeth V. Warren, a Trustee of the institution since 2007, as its next President of the Board.

“At this important moment for the museum, I’m excited for my good friend, Liz Warren,” said Mr. Blanchard. “Liz has been an active and trusted member of the board for over a decade and brings a thoughtful and pragmatic point-of-view to all museum matters. I am looking forward to continuing our work together in my new role as Chairman.”

Noted President Warren: “It is a pleasure and honor to continue my work in this new leadership capacity. Together with the board and the staff, I will build upon the success of my colleague Monty Blanchard. As the museum nears its 60th Anniversary in 2021, I look forward to the future with optimism and excitement.”

Commented Director Jason T. Busch: “I am delighted by the election of Elizabeth V. Warren and look forward to working ever more closely with her. Liz's blend of vision and patience make her an ideal President and will help ensure the long-term strength of the museum she has served so ably. I know that Liz will maintain the tradition of thoughtful board leadership that has served the museum’s audiences—local, national, and international—so well over the years."
