Jill Wagar is currently the Deputy Director of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. The museum, a nonprofit public charity founded by Alice Walton, opened its doors in November of 2011. Jill has been a staff member since Crystal Bridges’ inception. Her initial role at the museum was Director of Development, followed by Chief Strategy Officer.
In this episode, Jill discusses the three main principles Crystal Bridges has implemented to usher in a new era of community: inclusion, diversity, and anti-racism. These principles strongly support the museum’s mission to build a community centered around acceptance and belonging.
Additionally, Jill shares her strategies on fundraising and gives insight on how to engage with potential donors. The museum is currently undergoing an expansion of their building by 50 percent that includes additional art galleries and educational spaces for visitors to enjoy.
