Boca Raton, FL - The Boca Museum of Art’s Board of Trustees announced today that Steven Maklansky has resigned as Director of the Boca Museum of Art, effective January 31, 2014. During his two-and-a-half year tenure, Maklansky attracted new audiences to the Museum with diverse and stimulating exhibitions and programs that helped to raise the prominence, standing, and engagement of the institution by stressing the importance of community involvement and the Museum’s essential role in arts education.
His efforts in securing financial and in-kind support helped enable the Museum to fulfill its updated mission to celebrate, present, interpret, collect, preserve, encourage, and inspire creativity; to execute a modernization of its logo and overall graphic identity; and to move ever closer towards fully realizing its institutional vision of being the inclusive, dynamic, and engaging cultural and educational nexus for a community that values art for its incomparable expression, documentation, and reflection of human aspiration and achievement.
“The Museum is filled with wonderful art and interesting people and is now positioned for continued success. Working with the Board of Trustees and the Museum's dedicated staff, we have made significant improvements in all phases of its operations. The Museum is widely perceived as a modern, dynamic, relevant, and engaging institution.” Maklansky said.
“We thank Steven for his passion, vision, and leadership. We wish him success in all his future endeavors,” said Boca Museum Board President, Dalia Stiller.
