"It is a pleasure to welcome Cleveland to the Morris Museum," stated Gerri Horn, chair of the museum's board and a member of the search committee that selected Johnson. "I am confident his experience in museum leadership, education, music, the arts, and grant-making -- coupled with his engaging personality -- will serve our institution exceptionally well for years to come."
