Now in his tenth year as director of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Alex Nyerges is responsible for leading one of the nation’s top comprehensive art museums with exciting and far-reaching strategic plans for the future. His wife Kathryn Gray has been by his side every step of the journey. Increasing membership five-fold and making The VMFA accessible to all Richmonders has truly made the VMFA a welcoming Crown Jewel. Colleagues and friends marvel at their earnest engagement in the Richmond Arts Community that goes far beyond the already vast reaches of The Museum.
Nyerges is a member of the Forum Club, has served as an Advisory Board member of the Asian American Society of Central Virginia, the Mayor’s Richmond Real Estate Task Roundtable and co-chair of the Mayor’s Tourism Commission, the Armory Steering Committee at the Black History Cultural Museum, and the Chamber of Commerce Capital Regional Collaborative. He is also an Affiliate Graduate Faculty member at Virginia Commonwealth University.
