New Executive Director named for the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture

Wesley P. Jessup has been appointed as the new executive director of the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, effective March 1, 2017. Jessup, 47, who most recently served as the director of the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center in Colorado, brings extensive experience in strategic planning, program development, facilities management and community outreach. He led a successful capital campaign at the Longmont Museum to raise $4.6 million for an auditorium addition, and developed programs and exhibitions that more than doubled the museum's annual attendance.

Before moving to Longmont in 2011, Jessup led a successful two-year effort on behalf of Kawerak, Inc., a Native American corporation in his home state of Alaska, to develop a cultural center in the Bering Straits region. As project director, he worked with tribal leaders from 20 villages, and developed a deep respect for Native American culture. Since the MAC has one of the world's finest collections of Plateau Indian artifacts, Jessup said, "I look forward to working with local tribal leaders and the museum staff to ensure that this world-class collection of more than 22,000 artifacts, photographs, and documents from the Plateau Indian tribes continues to not only be preserved, but also utilized to educate people about this region's rich Native American culture."

Jessup has worked for a broad range of museums, from the Guggenheim Museum in New York as the manager of budgeting and planning for international programs, to the Pasadena Museum of California Art, established in 2002, where he served as the founding director.

Jessup received his M.A. in Art History and Museum Studies from City University of New York in 2001, and was selected to attend the Getty Museum Leadership Institute in 2005 where he received his Arts Management Certificate. He is a member of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) reaccreditation team, and a grant reviewer for the Institute of Museums and Library Services.
