Statement on the Passing of Former Executive Director Georganne Coble Bingham

The Taubman Museum of Art Board of Trustees is sad to share the news that former Executive Director Georganne Coble Bingham has passed away.

Georganne led the Museum from 2003 to 2009, overseeing a number of achievements that transformed the Museum and its collection. “Georganne’s love of art and enthusiasm for Roanoke fueled her,” said Leon Harris, chairman of the Board of Trustees. “She worked tirelessly to raise funds for a new building that could showcase the permanent collection and host major national exhibitions. Thanks in large part to her hard work and dedication, the Taubman Museum of Art is now a world-class arts institution. She will be missed by many in our community and beyond. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.”

Memorials may be made to Hospice of Davidson County, 200 Hospice Way, Lexington, N.C. 27292, or to Grace Episcopal Church, 419 S. Main St., Lexington, N.C. 27292.
