LACMA adds three trustees, strengthens entertainment industry ties
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has added three new members to its board of trustees, including Caroline Grainge, a former fashion executive who is married to Lucian Grainge, the chairman and chief executive of Universal Music Group.
The museum, which made the announcement on Tuesday, said that Soumaya Slim, daughter of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, is also joining the board. Soumaya Slim has served as the director of Mexico City’s Museo Soumaya, founded by her father and named after her late mother.
Thelma Golden, director and chief curator of the Studio Museum in New York’s Harlem, also has joined LACMA’s board.
Other trustees in the entertainment field include Casey Wasserman, Ryan Seacrest, Carole Bayer Sager and Brian Grazer.
The number of LACMA trustees stands at 54, not counting non-voting life trustees, who hold honorary positions. Last year, the museum named Elaine Wynn and Antony Ressler as the new board co-chairs.
LACMA has been expanding its board in recent years as it works toward raising millions for its new building, a Peter Zumthor-designed structure that is expected to break ground in 2018.
