Museum Seeks Executive Director


The Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art is a not-for-profit museum located in the west suburbs of Chicago. Since 1962 the Museum has specialized in carved hardstone art objects from around the world with a unique emphasis on Chinese jade from the Qing dynasty to the Republic period. The Museum also houses collections of minerals, gemstones, fossils and provides educational programming and special exhibits to the public. The Museum welcomes nearly 28,000 visitors annually and maintains community outreach programs and exhibits. Through the vision and efforts of several generations of the Lizzadro family, the Museum has grown over the last 60+ years and is ready to begin the next phase of stewardship. In 2019 the Museum relocated to a new 15,000 sq. ft. facility and is seeking a dynamic leader to contribute to our future.
