In Loving Memory of Dr. Peter C. Keller
After over three decades of leadership, it is with the greatest sadness that the Bowers Museum family announces the passing of President and CEO Dr. Peter C. Keller. Those who knew him well understood that, in many ways, his final day was an ideal one for him - putting in a full day of work in preparation for the opening of an exceptional exhibition that he was very proud of, Guo Pei: Art of Couture, followed by dinner with his wife.

“With his leadership and experience, we have brought amazing exhibits from all around the world to Orange County.” – Anne Shih, Bowers Museum Chairwoman of the Board of Governors
In lieu of flowers, Dr. Keller's family asks that donations be made to the Bowers Museum. These funds will be used to continue his legacy and grow his favorite permanent collection exhibition Spirits & Headhunters: Art of the Pacific Islands. Click here to make a donation.
