Congratulations go out to the Art Museum's education team for receiving the EdCom Award for Excellence in Programming. This is a regional award given by the Mountain Plains Museum Association, which also places the Art Museum Education Department in contention to receive the national level award given by the American Association of Museums.

The award was given for Transforming Learning: Summer Teaching Institute, an annual summer program hosted by the Art Museum to help teachers, librarians, and community leaders learn about ways to incorporate original artwork into their teaching. This prestigious award is given for "exemplary creativity and innovation in museum educational programming."

To learn more about the great things that the education team is doing, or to tell them congratulations, give them a call at 307.766.3496, or email Master Teacher Heather Bender at
