Nora Maroulis is on the move. Massachusetts’s Worcester Art Museum announced today that it has tapped Ms. Maroulis, who currently serves as deputy director for external affairs at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Mass., to be its new director of philanthropy, which focuses on fundraising for the museum. She starts next month.

Ms. Maroulis has previously worked for the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, which is also in Amherst. She earned her B.A. in art history and studio art from Marymount and studied graduate-level art history at Columbia.

“The museum is an art historical treasure trove, a vibrant reflection of Worcester’s rich history and bright future, and a model for what museums can be when they dare to take risks,” the new director of philanthropy said in a statement. “The excitement is palpable.”
