Nita Ambani, educationist, philanthropist, businesswoman, Founder and Chairperson of the Reliance Foundation and the wife of RIL Chairman and billionaire Mukesh Ambani, has been appointed to the board of the largest art museum in the United States, Metropolitan Museum of Art, also known as The Met. With this, Nita Ambani has become the first Indian who has been appointed as "trustee" in the Museum's 149-year-history. The appointment comes four years after Nita Ambani began her efforts to support exhibitions at the New York City institution.
Nita Ambani said, “It has been deeply rewarding for me over the past several years to support The Metropolitan Museum of Art in its desire to expand and enhance its program of exhibiting the arts of India. I have been moved and impressed by The Met’s keen interest, which enables our commitment to seeing Indian art and culture represented on the global platform. This great distinction inspires me to redouble my efforts on behalf of India’s heritage, from the ancient to the contemporary.”
