RENO – The Nevada Museum of Art has appointed Janet Mello to its Board of Trustees, serving a two-year term.
"Janet and Nevada State Bank have been longtime advocates and supporters of the Nevada Museum of Art,” shared Barbara Danz, chair of Nevada Museum of Art board of trustees. “We are thrilled to welcome Janet to our board, particularly at a time when the Museum is increasing its presence throughout our state."
Mello is vice president, senior private banking officer for Nevada State Bank and has nearly 25 years of experience in wealth management, private banking and insurance. She heads up the bank’s private banking division in Northern Nevada and has a proven history of success in sales and relationship management working with high net and ultra-high net worth clients.
“I feel honored to be elected to the Nevada Museum of Art’s Board of Trustees,” Mello said. “I consider it a privilege to serve alongside some of Nevada’s greatest leaders and look forward to being part of this tremendous organization led by the inspiring visionary, Mr. David Walker.”
The Nevada Museum of Art recently hosted the exhibit Seven Magic Mountains visible across the desert landscape along Interstate 15 in Southern Nevada, in addition to Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada, an exhibition bridging the divide between Northern and Southern Nevada communities, providing an eclectic collection of contemporary work being created by more than thirty artists living and working in Nevada today. The exhibit was recently on view in Reno and will be on display in Southern Nevada in 2017.
Passionate about volunteering, Mello has been active in the community with service to the Nevada Women’s Fund, including serving as board chairman.
