Keynote: Harriet Baskas
|Click here for Hotel Information||WEDNESDAY||THURSDAY||FRIDAY|
WaMA invites museum professionals, board members, volunteers, and supporters to explore the “Treasures of Washington’s Museums” above the scenic and storied Columbia River Gorge at the Maryhill Museum of Art. Washington’s museums relate rich stories of our diverse state through preservation, exhibits, public programs, research, and service to communities that caretake cultural identity and promote civic health.
The Maryhill Museum of Art was originally built by Sam Hill for his wife Mary, daughter of railroad tycoon James J. Hill, in 1923, and dedicated by Queen Marie of Romania in 1926. 2015 marks the 75th Anniversary of the museum’s public opening in 1940. Maryhill showcases a world-class collection ranging from early 20th century European art works to an extensive Native American collection. It is neighbor to dozens of other museums, galleries, and cultural centers housing treasures that tell a myriad of amazing but true tales.
Come experience the nature, culture, history, and the wineries of this incredible corner of Washington State. Join your museum colleagues at Maryhill, within and outside its new Mary and Bruce Stevenson Wing. Take in the views, enjoy the camaraderie, and share your “treasures” at the 2015 Washington Museum Association Conference.
We especially encourage you to invite your board members, volunteers, and dedicated supporters to use this opportunity for professional development and to build a statewide network of support for Washington’s cultural heritage.
