DALLAS, TX – August 20, 2019: The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is pleased to announce that Kimberly Camuel Bryan is joining the Museum’s senior leadership team as Chief Philanthropy Officer. Bryan brings more than 15 years of development experience in the arts and cultural community to her new role, where she will oversee all aspects of institutional fundraising initiatives.
Prior to joining the Museum, Bryan spent 12 years with the Dallas Museum of Art on a director level in a variety of development positions, including Donor Circle Membership, Partners Program and Associate Director of Development. Her development experience also includes the Dallas Arboretum, Dallas-based TACA (The Arts Community Alliance) and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
“Since its inception 30 years ago, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza has evolved beyond the story of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to become a multigenerational forum where students and visitors around the world can be inspired by the President’s legacy of civil rights, space and technology, the arts, volunteerism and more,” said Nicola Longford, Chief Executive Officer. “The Museum’s initiatives for the next 30 years are ambitious and community- focused, and the Chief Philanthropy Officer will play a key role in cultivating strong stakeholder relationships that ensure continued relevancy and sustainability.
“Kimberly has extensive experience with multi-million-dollar fundraising campaigns, but equally important is her proven commitment to the local cultural community,” added Longford. “Her leadership and insight will be invaluable as we continue to serve our diverse, growing audiences with engaging exhibits, compelling programs and interactive educational experiences.”
