Just in time for its 25th anniversary, the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) welcomes 10 new members to its Board of Directors. MODA is thrilled by the new wave of support that will help the museum expand its reach in the Atlanta community and beyond.
“We welcome these new board members and are grateful for the service of those ongoing trustees whose hard work has contributed to MODA’s growth and success in the past years,” said MODA executive director Laura Flusche. “We have ambitious plans for the museum, and I look forward to working with these talented and energetic individuals as we pursue goals that will strengthen MODA’s position as one of Atlanta’s most relevant and essential cultural institutions.”
Since taking the helm at MODA in January 2013, Flusche has redirected MODA’s efforts, developing a strategic plan, advancing an annual exhibition schedule and forming partnerships to strengthen MODA’s position as an educational resource for children and adults. The sweeping changes that have taken place at MODA during the last year will ensure the museum’s viability for the next quarter century.
