Washington, DC—The National Gallery of Art announced today that Marc Vogl will join the museum as its first chief strategy and planning officer. Vogl will work alongside leadership and staff to formulate and implement strategic priorities across the organization.

Vogl has more than 20 years of experience developing, leading, and evaluating programming at philanthropic institutions and non-profit organizations, including facilitating meetings and planning processes at cultural organizations and foundations. He specializes in strategy development that helps organizations grow capacity, strengthen internal systems, and expand external collaborations.

In this role, Vogl will support all aspects of enterprise-wide and department-level strategy design, implementation, and evaluation, as well as communication and reporting to stakeholders. This new position will assist the National Gallery in identifying and solving complex business, organization, and operational challenges and define and improve processes. Vogl will also advise on business development opportunities.

“Marc is a creative thinker and problem solver who will bring deep knowledge about strategic planning and national arts policy to this important new role for the National Gallery,” said Kaywin Feldman. “Marc has a demonstrated talent for helping people and organizations forge connections, collaborate, and work toward enterprise-wide goals. With this combination of experience and ability, Marc will help our dedicated National Gallery teams translate our ambitious strategic priorities into achievements that fulfill our mission of service to the nation. I am delighted to have Marc join my leadership team.”

In 2016, Vogl was appointed Visiting Assistant Professor of Practice at Brown University’s Center for Public Humanities where he taught graduate courses in arts management and cultural policy. Vogl has served on Barack Obama’s National Arts Policy Committee, the San Francisco Citizen’s Committee on Community Development, and the San Francisco Arts Task Force.

“I am tremendously excited to be joining the extraordinary team at the National Gallery of Art to advance a vision of a museum that is of the nation and for all people. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with cultural organizations across the country to enrich the lives of individuals and communities through accessible arts experiences. My own story as a believer in the power of the arts began as a child growing up in Washington D.C. going to free museums, including the National Gallery. To return to Washington and join inspiring colleagues to develop the roadmaps and the resources to welcome all people to explore and experience art, creativity, and our shared humanity is a dream come true.”

Vogl will begin his tenure in early 2024. He holds a BA in history and English literature from Brown University and an MPA from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
