I’m delighted to report that the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum received a number of awards at this year’s Tennessee Association of Museums conference. Our Civil War STEAM event and Skype in the Vault program earned Awards of Excellence, and our new permanent exhibit Log Walls to Marble Halls received an Award of Commendation. The big news, though, is this: Civil War STEAM received the prestigious Past Presidents Award.
Needless to say, I’m very proud of my staff, and very grateful for this recognition by our colleagues in the museum field. Kudos especially to Program Coordinator Natalie Sweet, who was the dynamo behind the STEAM event. Big thanks also to Owen Design Group and 1220 Exhibits, who made Log Walls into a reality for us.
And hats off to TAM for putting on the most enjoyable, collegial, and helpful museum conference I’ve ever attended. See you folks again next year!
