The Museum of Latin American Art Receives $75,000

The Museum of Latin American Art has received a seventy-five-thousand-dollar grant from the James Irvine Foundation. The Signal Tribune Newspaper reports that the funds are intended to expand the museum’s curatorial purview and institutional reach. Plans include bringing in executive coaching and consultants to strengthen organizational leadership and provide staff training; a professional board will also be established. Said president and CEO Stuart A. Ashman: “The grant is a strong vote of confidence and support for the museum’s efforts to attain its goal of becoming a self-sustaining organization that serves its community. Upon learning that we had received the grant, I felt that the foundation had understood our efforts and was gratified that they came forward to provide the museum with both moral and financial support.”
