The Trout Museum of Art in downtown Appleton announced Tuesday that Pamela Williams-Lime will assume the role of executive director at the museum May 15.
Williams-Lime, of Appleton, previously served as the executive director of the International Wildlife Center of Wisconsin and the Windhover Center for the Arts in Fond du Lac. She succeeds Timothy Riley, who is moving to join his family in La Crosse.
“We are confident Pamela’s leadership will continue the momentum we have established over the past 19 months as we’ve made the transformation from an art center to a museum,” Michael Cisler, president of the museum’s board of directors, said in a press release.
The museum’s mission is to promote, teach and nourish the creation and appreciation of the visual arts.
“The Trout Museum of Art is a tremendous community resource,” Williams-Lime said in the release. “In addition to building upon a history of innovative exhibitions, I’m looking forward to increasing community engagement and educational outreach to ensure we remain highly relevant to people of all ages in the Fox Cities.”
