Ileanne Buigas, Executive Director and Chief Curator

Ms. Buigas holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Miami and has an extensive Marketing background. She has served as interim Executive Director since LCMA's move to Tavares. The relationships she has formed with business and community members, plus her creative ideas have brought exhibits with local, national and international artists, created fundraising events that have funded LCMA's programs, and expanded the museum's Kid's Art program.

Ms. Buigas volunteered with LCMA in 2018 at its previous Eustis location (formerly Lake Eustis Museum of Art). She was invited to join the Board of Directors that same year and immediately took on the Marketing role. During her first several months on the Board she expanded LCMA's social media reach, arranged several interviews with local publications and was instrumental in launching its grand opening in Tavares in 2019.
