BALTIMORE, MD.- The Baltimore Museum of Art announced today the addition of five new trustees to its board: Michael Ealy, Nupur Parekh Flynn, Lori N. Johnson, Anne L. Stone, and John Waters. These new trustees join Clair Zamoiski Segal, the BMA’s Board Chair, Christopher Bedford, the Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director, and 36 other active trustees in leading the BMA and ensuring its long-term success. The board is responsible for the governance and oversight of the museum and fostering ongoing support for the BMA’s ambitious mission and vision.

“I am very excited to welcome the five new trustees, whose variety of skills and experiences across the fields of art, education, entertainment, marketing, and management will assist us as we continue to find ways to better serve our community and fulfill the Baltimore Museum of Art’s mission,” said Zamoiski Segal. “I have no doubt that this new cohort of trustees will enhance the museum’s governance and leadership, and I look forward to sharing their commitment and passion for the BMA’s vision with the rest of the board.”

“As we continue to expand our efforts to make the BMA a more equitable and inclusive institution, it is imperative that our Board reflect this endeavor,” said Bedford. “Our five new trustees reflect a diversity of backgrounds and skills whose experiences and knowledge will be invaluable in ensuring the BMA continues to tell an expansive story of art, embracing new voices and better serving the Baltimore community. I am very thankful to them and all of our trustees for dedicating their time and sharing their passion to strengthen our museum.”
