Our director and Board of Trustees oversee the museum and all its locations.

Leadership & Funding

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is a registered Pennsylvania not-for-profit corporation, led by a director and privately administered by a Board of Trustees. In June 2022, the Board elected Sasha Suda as the museum’s new director and CEO, marking a shift toward new-generation leadership and a commitment to civic engagement.

The City of Philadelphia owns the museum’s main building, the Rodin Museum building, the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman building, and the Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove historic houses in Fairmount Park. The museum provides administrative services for the Rodin Museum and both historic houses, as well as the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial.

We are supported by endowments, voluntary gifts, corporate support, private foundation grants, and state and federal grants, as well as by admissions, membership fees, and merchandise sales.

Our fiscal year begins each July 1. Both the Board of Trustees and the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees meet five times a year.
