Connie Gibbons steps down as executive director of the NIC; search on for replacement

From a press release:

The Board of Directors of the Nicolaysen Art Museum today announces that its Executive Director, Connie Gibbons, will take up a position beginning in June with the Mulvane Art Museum at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. Gibbons made the decision to leave the NIC to be closer to her family, and the Board has commenced a search to find a new executive director.

Gibbons was hired in January 2011 and oversaw a number of positive changes in the NIC’s programs and operating processes. “The Nicolaysen Art Museum is one of the most important cultural institutions in the region,” said Gibbons.  “It has been an honor to work with the Board of Directors, staff, the NIC’s great supporters and the community, and it has been exciting to see our programs blossom.”

“Our programs have grown and we are excited about the course that has emerged under Connie’s leadership,” said Jennifer True, past chair of the Board of Directors.  “Although Connie will be missed, the NIC has an incredible staff and it will continue to engage and stimulate our community through our programs and exhibitions.”

Simon Marshall, chair of the Board of Directors said, “Our focus now is on finding the right candidate to ensure the NIC continues to be the foremost art and creative learning resource in Wyoming.  Our new executive director will assist with our new 25th Anniversary Sustainability Campaign. The goal of the campaign is ensuring the future of the NIC for the next 25 years.”
