From Darling Daughters to Directors

The Advancement Department is very pleased to share the news that Andrea Angelo has resigned from the Nevada Museum of Art Board of Trustees and will join the Museum staff on August 9 as Director of Individual Giving and Membership Programs. Some of you have already met Andrea as she has been an active and energetic Museum Trustee and a leader of the successful Taste for Art and Winemakers Dinner in 2010 and co-chair of the Museum’s savor 2011 event scheduled this August.

Prior to moving to Reno in 2007, Andrea, her husband Jack and their three daughters called Austin, Texas home. During those years, Andrea was a founding member of the Advisory Board for the Humanities of St. Edwards University in Austin, served as a trustee of the Austin Lyric Opera and was Chair of the Armstrong Community Music School Board.

Originally from the East Coast, Andrea considers herself a world citizen having lived in Milan, Copenhagen and London. While in Denmark, Andrea co-founded the International Education Program, a pioneering adult education program for the international community. When she returned to the U.S. to reside in Dayton,Ohio, she founded the annual ArtWalk event as part of the arts renaissance initiative going on in that city. She also helped to launch the Dayton Visual Arts Center and served as a docent at the Dayton Art Institute.

As an art history undergraduate at Pennsylvania State University, she had the opportunity to study art and architecture in Rome. Her studies and international travels forged her love of art and museums. She has a masters in Information Science from Drexel University and has enjoyed her many years spent working in public and university libraries.

We look forward to welcoming Andrea and her considerable talents to the fundraising team. Her telephone number will be 775-329-3333 x232 and her email: andrea.angelo@nevadaart.org.

Ava Rae was born on January 17, 2011. She is the most happy baby and loves laughing at her big brother. Life is hectic in the Munoz house with two little ones just 18 months apart, but Ava’s smile and little laugh are infectious and keep us all grinning from ear to ear. I have decided that Ava and Landon are able to communicate to each other and have already decided that they are on “Team Kids” in the game of life. Some days, it seems like “Team Kids” have a leg up on “Team Parents,” but every once in a while they let us win. At first it was a shock to hear our little ones would be so close in age, but it has really turned out to be a blessing as we watch our children start to lay the groundwork for a magical friendship.
