Board of Trustees

Board President Jeff Kane and Mark H.C. Bessire, Judy and Leonard Lauder Director.
The Portland Museum of Art is fortunate to have the leadership of its Board of Trustees.

Committed to strengthening the Portland Museum of Art as the foremost cultural institution in Maine, the Board of Trustees works tirelessly to support and grow PMA's mission. Together with Mark H.C. Bessire, the Judy and Leonard Lauder Director, and museum leadership, the Board of Trustees has overseen and directed a period of incredible transformation, expansion, and prosperity at the museum. As the PMA looks to the future—with an eye toward continued growth, influence, and renown—it couldn't be in better hands.
