A Note from the Director
I am deeply grateful for the opportunity I have had of serving as interim director—and learning much more about the programs, collections, staff, and volunteer family of the Museum. This is a glorious institution.
With construction of the John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden nearing completion, we have begun the planting phase. Fairlie Rinehart’s beautiful landscape plan will complement Jim Barganier’s beautiful design of the structures and grounds, and the new space will be spectacular. We are already looking forward to big opening events in September and October.
Another important note is a special recognition by the Board thanking Mark Johnson for his contributions to the Museum during his twenty-three years as director. An inscription above the lintel of the second set of entrance doors was unveiled at a small ceremony for Mark and his family on February 17. Please look for it the next time you visit.
We have some wonderful programs coming up over the next few months and hope you will join us for as many of them as you can. See for yourself the many opportunities for learning, enrichment, and pleasure that the Museum offers to us all.
