Statement from Director Daniel Keegan on the passing of Betty Quadracci

We are truly saddened by this news.

Betty, and Harry, along with the Quadracci family have played such an enormous role in the life and success of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Betty’s leadership and influence on our entire community is immeasurable. Without her vision, the Milwaukee Art Museum would not exist as it does today. The Quadracci Pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum, now the symbol of the city, ensures that her legacy will continue for generations.

Betty provided over 26 years of service to the Museum as a member of the Board of Trustees. She is one of only two board members that have been designated as “Trustee Emeritus,” due to her high level of involvement and philanthropic support.

We ask that Milwaukee residents remember her and the Quadracci family in your thoughts and prayers.
