Morven Trustees Appoint Rhonda DiMascio Executive Director of Morven Museum & Garden

PRINCETON, N.J. - Feb. 22, 2024 - PRLog -- The Morven Museum & Garden Board of Trustees has named veteran museum and gardens leader Rhonda DiMascio to serve as the new Executive Director of Morven Museum & Garden, the home of Richard Stockton, one of New Jersey's five signers of the Declaration of Independence.

DiMascio, a New Jersey native, has spent more than a quarter century as an executive at museums and gardens and brings significant leadership experience in program and fund development, a passion for history and preservation, and a commitment to educational programming and community outreach.

"We are delighted to have Rhonda take the lead at Morven as we build on Morven's record of historical scholarship, exhibitions and world-class garden," said Morven Chairwoman, Liza Morehouse. "We have exciting times ahead, and an excellent team in place with Morven about to celebrate its 20th Anniversary and with the nation about to celebrate the 250th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence."

"Morven has had such an important role in the history of our state and of Princeton, from the days when Richard Stockton lived here, to its tenure as the Governor's Mansion, to today where it features best-in-class gardens and a rich record of preserving history," DiMascio said. "It is an honor and privilege to be entrusted by the Morven Board with this role."

DiMascio has served as Executive Director of Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia for the past four years. Laurel Hill is one of the oldest cemeteries in the country and a National Historic Landmark that offers programs focused on history, arts, science, and nature.

DiMascio also served as the first Development Director of Grounds for Sculpture, a 42-acre sculpture park in Hamilton, NJ where she created a sustainable fundraising program that contributed to a 47% increase in revenue due in large part to individual donations, corporate sponsorships, special events, and grants from private and government agencies.

Earlier in her career, she served as the Executive Director of the Alice Paul Institute (API) in Mount Laurel, NJ, a National Historic Landmark and family home and birthplace of suffragist and women's rights activist Alice Stokes Paul.

She will assume her responsibilities as Executive Director of Morven on March 25, 2024.
