MI Museum Spotlight:

Who is Rosie Lee Wilkins? A reflection on what we learned at the Lakeshore Museum Center


Tuesday, August 10
1:00 pm

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

Check out this brief video for more information on the event. 

The exhibit Who is Rosie Lee Wilkins? Piecing Together Her History ran from November 2020 to April 2021 at the Lakeshore Museum Center. What began as an idea to feature quilts from the permanent collection shifted and became a research mystery with a surprising twist ending.

Hear from Collections Manager, Brenda Nemetz, about the struggles and breakthroughs while researching during a pandemic, and how Rosie’s story has influenced the museum’s approach to collecting and exhibits moving forward.
