Treasure Coast Essay

New CEO for a cultural jewel

This is Paul Janensch with a Treasure Coast Essay about a change at the top of the Vero Beach Museum of Art, one of our area’s cultural jewels.  The new CEO is Brady Roberts, who was chief curator of the Milwaukee Art Museum.  Some years ago, he gave a lecture at the Vero Beach museum and recently told the weekly newspaper 32963 that he found the community to be “intellectually engaged.”  The museum attracts 80,000 visitors a year and is considered to be one of the major art museums in Florida.  Roberts succeeds Lucinda Gedeon, the CEO for 12 years.  Under her leadership, the museum expanded its collection, attracted impressive exhibits, added educational and other outreach programs and upgraded the physical plant – all made possible by increasing the financial support.  I’m Paul Janensch.
