Ithaca, NY

Exhibits Coordinator

The History Center in Tompkins County

On 23, Feb 2013 | In Work-For-Hire Projects

After being first drawn to The History Center in Tompkins County by research for the Alison Mason Kingsbury project, I quickly found myself deeply involved with the exhibits program, first as an intern and then as their exhibit coordinator.

Archivist Donna Eschenbrenner and I worked closely together to mount frequently changing exhibits, highlighting items from the institution’s own collections as well as objects on loan from the community. A small institution on a shoe-string budget, my work ran the gamut from original document research, writing, design, and installation. As part of the publicity for the exhibits, I was also a contributor to the organization’s regular Ithaca Journal column Now & Then.

After my tenure with the organization, I became a member of the Center’s Advisory Council, a hand-selected group of museum industry individuals brought together to explore avenues of future growth for the institution and discuss its place within the community.
