Join the Indianapolis Museum of Art as museum leaders share their stories about how their successful business strategies and approach to engaging audiences and donors have transformed their organizations.

In 2004, Steven Koblik launched the largest capital campaign in The Huntington's history, For Generations to Come—The Campaign for The Huntington, raised $244 million - 40 percent more than its targeted goal - at its conclusion. Under Koblik's leadership, the Huntington has seen a range of additions to its 206-acre campus, including renovation and restoration of the Japanese Garden, expansion of the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries, renovation of the Huntington Art Gallery and opening of the Huntington's new Chinese Garden as well as increasingly ambitions acquisitions and special exhibition programming. Simultaneously, The Huntington has had unprecedented growth in its attendance, membership, earned income, and donated revenue.

Trained as a diplomatic historian, Koblik holds a bachelor's degree from the University of California, Berkeley, in history and Scandinavian languages, a master's from the University of Stockholm in international relations, and a doctorate from Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill., in modern European history.
