The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, has elected two new trustees: Sandra H. Hoffen, president of the Hoffen Family Foundation, and John Wilkerson, the founder and senior advisor of Galen Partners, a healthcare-focused equity investment firm. Comprising thirty-three active members, the current board is the largest in the museum’s history, with the addition of a record twenty-four new trustees in the past three years. Their appointment comes on the heels of record attendance at the museum of more than a million visitors in 2017.
“These newly elected trustees bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the Hirshhorn, including a long-standing dedication to cultural programming and community engagement,” said board chair Daniel H. Sallick. “Their perspectives will help shape the future of the museum as we continue to build upon the role of a national institution in the twenty-first century.”
