We are honored to announce that three artists -- Zoë Charlton, Linn Meyers, and José Ruiz -- have joined the WPA Board of Directors. Back in the 1980s, the Board was comprised of 50% artists and 50% patrons. Early artist board members included Bill Christenberry, Sam Gilliam, Tom Green, E. Ethelbert Miller, Robert Rauschenberg, Renée Stout, and Maida Withers.
We believe that having artists at the governance table is essential to our increasingly artist-driven mission. These three inspiring colleagues, all of whom have exhibited internationally, have demonstrated a profound commitment to strengthening the arts community in this region. For the next three years, they will be an integral part of WPA's work. We are pleased to welcome them.
