From the Editor

What a year! It was wonderful to have so much activity and energy in the museum this last semester as we proudly displayed and celebrated two of my favorite types of exhibitions (ok I love them all): photographs and student work! The year ended on a high note with our exciting news of a major gift from our longtime donor Richard Cocks. What a way to end a fantastic year! Other highlights for me personally were celebrating the student exhibition and one particular program that I will NEVER forget! If reliving the story of Freedom Summer through the lens of legendary photographer Steven Schapiro wasn’t powerful enough, then standing amongst his works with a gallery full of people singing “This Little Light of Mine” blew me away! I always love it when music makes its way into the exhibition-viewing experience! Another exciting project has been working with the student content team as we ramped up our video content strategy which included us diving into TikTok! Lastly, we added two new colleagues to our team and they have been FANTASTIC to work with – thank you Stevie and Hope for your teamwork and fresh new ideas! I share here our most recent staff picture with one of my favorite sculptures, Barnswallow by recent Sculpture Lifetime Achievement award winner Deborah Butterfield. We ALL look forward to seeing you at the museum this Spring!
