Board of Directors
Matthew J. Montero
Chairman and CEO
Matthew Montero is the Chairman and CEO of THE ICONS MUSEUM. As the artist and founder, his vision guides the long-term future and day-to-day operations of the museum.
After successfully creating and turning ICONS into one of the top museums in Louisiana, Montero, at age 32, made the notable decision to turn over the entire museum and ownership to the public. His commitment to raising the bar of visual art experience has afforded him community awards, inspiring reviews, honorary speaking opportunities, and the admiration of his peers. "In the end, what I am most proud of, and what matters most, is that no matter who walks through our doors, you will be treated with the utmost humanity and have a singular and memorable artistic experience."
