The Nation’s Largest Art Museums Lack Women Directors
A collaborative study between the Association of Art Museum Directors and the National Center for Arts Research reveals a lack of women directors among the country’s largest art museums. According to the study, only one of the nation’s 13 largest museums is run by a female. Further, 30 percent of institutions with budgets over $15 million have women as a director. That number significantly drops when considering the 20 institutions with the largest budgets; only three of those 20 institutions have female directors. More on the gender gap at art museums is available on the Nonprofit Quarterly website.
