Delaware Art Museum’s New Board Slate Elected

Museum Welcomes Directors with Deep Roots in the Community and Passion for the Arts

On May 16, Delaware Art Museum members voted in a slate of new trustees for three-year terms.

“In my tenure leading the Museum, I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with some of these new trustees before,“ said Executive Director Molly Giordano. “Their passion for not just the Museum’s mission, but for our collections and patrons make them ideal additions to the board of trustees.”

“This cohort of trustees bring to the table a variety of life experiences, but mostly they bring a collective dedication to art,” said board president Christine Moritz. “As an arts lover myself, it is energizing to enter the coming year with a group that has already made such a difference in the art community.”

The five trustees joining the Delaware Art Museum board this spring are:

  • Dave Allman, an entrepreneurial executive with an Executive MBA from Emory University focused on systems dynamics, organizational behavior, and change management. The son of renowned local artist Margo Allman, he has served as a volunteer strategic advisor to the Museum.
  • Lindsey DiSabatino, an executive at Accenture with nearly two decades of experience in talent strategy, transformational program delivery, and the establishment of globally managed services. She earned a finance degree, focusing on economics and minoring in Italian, from Pennsylvania State University’s Smeal College of Business. A neighbor of the Museum, DiSabatino has served in leadership roles for community family events, and co-led Art of the Cocktail in 2024.
  • Jennifer Aiken Fulton, a talk therapist specializing in work with children, teens, parents, and families, who is also a Pre-Raphaelite enthusiast. She helped lead the Museum’s 2023 gala.
  • Barbara Goetz, a floral designer and retired teacher with a master’s degree in education from Temple University, a nearly three-decade Delaware Art Museum volunteer and past President of the Museum Council. She served in leadership roles for Museum events such as Art in Bloom, the Holiday House Tour, and Art at Play, designed and created elements of the Museum’s iconic holiday décor, and started DelArt’s Winter Artisan Festival.
  • Otis Robertson spent 25 years in the corporate sector, including Polaroid, Digital Equipment Management, and Waddell & Reed. He holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Morgan State University. Robertson has a notable African American art collection and serves on the Baltimore Museum of Art, Delaware Art Museum, and Brandywine Workshop collections committees, as well as on the board and as past chair of the James E. Lewis Museum of Art Foundation.

These new trustees offer harmonious areas of expertise from which the Museum will benefit as the Museum homes in on its mission to connect people to art, and to each other.

The Museum is supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on
