    MI Museum Spotlight:
    From Drab to Fab - Renovations at the Berrien County Historical Association


    Tuesday, April 13
    1:00 pm

    MI Museum Spotlight program that gives MMA members the chance to share their work with colleagues. 

    The Berrien County Historical Association's Rhiannon Cizon found herself unexpectedly renovating the museum's permanent exhibit thanks to a discovery of asbestos.  In this program, she'll walk participants through the newly updated space and explore how they took a 45 year old gallery and gave it new life.  She'll also talk about important stuff - budgets, fundraising, and manpower and how to secure these to make exhibit renovation a reality for your institution.

    View a brief intro to the project from Rhiannon Cizon here
