Aspen Art Museum Receives $2,500,000 Gift

The Aspen Art Museum has announced that it has received a significant gift of $2,500,000 from Nancy and Bob Magoon. The money will partially fund the salary of the person who works as CEO and director of the museum—the first endowed position at the museum in thirty-three years. The couple has also given a $500,000 gift to fund the construction of a new facility in Aspen. Bob Magoon has served as member of the museum's national council and Nancy Magoon currently sits on the museum's board of trustees. She also served as board president from 2006 to 2009. Heidi Zuckerman, who will fill the new endowed position, stated, “I am equally honored and humbled to accept this wonderful gift on behalf of the museum, as well as to continue carrying the directorship of the institution forward under their name. The Magoons’ collective work for the realization of all the AAM has and continues to achieve cannot be overstated.”
