President of the Metropolitan Museum
Weiss is the president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York since 2015.
On October 12, 2017 Weiss voiced, on behalf of the museum, opposition to the Trump administration decision to pull out of UNESCO stating:
President Trump’s decision to withdraw from UNESCO undermines the historic role of the United States as a leader in this effort and weakens our position as a strong advocate for cultural preservation. Although UNESCO may be an imperfect organization, it has been an important leader and steadfast partner in this crucial work.
