The Cahoon Museum of American Art is pleased to announce the election of new officers to its Board of Trustees. Jessica Rapp Grassetti, a long time Cahoon Museum supporter, has been elected to take the helm as the new President.

“I am excited to return to the Board of Trustees and am looking forward to supporting the outstanding exhibitions and programs planned at the Museum in 2020,” Jessica said.
