Tim Schiffer

The Figge Art Museum in Davenport will soon start looking for a new leader. Friday afternoon, it announced Executive Director and CEO Tim Schiffer has submitted his resignation, effective at the end of July. 

He came to the Figge in 2012, and major accomplishments include the recent signing of a long-term funding agreement with the city, elimination of its debt, and a number of major exhibitions, including the French Moderns last Fall and the Tiffany exhibit now on display.  

Cindy Carlson, President of the Board of Directors, says a national search will begin in the next month.
