Austin Wright

Austin C. Wright is the son of Jordan M. Wright and serves as the Chairman of the

Museum of Democracy. In this capacity, he has been able to share Jordan’s collection

with the world through the Museum and its national exhibitions. As Wright continues

to grow his father’s collection, his emphasis is on ensuring it remains accessible to all,

particularly the younger generations, to educate them about freedom and democracy

and inspire them to engage in the political process. In addition to being Chairman,

Wright is a strategic advisor, business consultant, fundraiser, and investor. He is

an avid supporter of various non-profit organizations, including the Metropolitan

Museum of Art, the Israel Museum, Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, the

American Federation for Children, and Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock, among others.

He and his wife, Madison, divide their time between New York City and Paradise

Valley, Arizona.
