Nannette Maciejunes to retire from Columbus Museum of Art this year

The Columbus Museum of Art’s leader for the past two decades, Nannette V. Maciejunes, announced Monday that she’ll retire at the end of the year.

The executive director and chief executive officer, whose career at the institution has spanned roughly 35 years, said that, at the age of 68, not only is it a good time for her personally to step aside, but it’s also the right time for a younger leadership to usher in a new era at the museum.

“COVID made a lot of us realize life will be different in the post-COVID world,” said Maciejunes, who lives in Granville. “We’re grappling with systemic racism and all those things we’re talking about nationwide and it’s a chance for the museum to step up and be engaging to the community — what does a 21st century museum look like?”
