The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum (NMHF&M) announces the hiring of Myles Gallagher as Curator, effective January 21. Myles replaces Stephanie Johnson, who was at the NMHF&M from 2015 until she left during the summer of 2018 to become Public Art & Program Manager at the Arts Council of Lake Oswego in Oregon.
Myles has a Master of Arts in Museum Studies from Arizona State University. He interned at the Tempe History Museum, Arizona State Museum, and Arizona State University Center for Archaeology and Society. He was also a Collections Assistant at the Arizona State University Center for Archaeology and Society and a Research Assistant at Windward Islands Research and Education in St. George, Grenada.
Executive Director Stephen Whittington commented, “The staff and board of the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum are fortunate to find a new Curator of Myles’s quality and experience willing to move from Tucson to Leadville. Once he has gotten over the shock of January in Lake County, I expect he will begin to develop interesting new exhibits and establish high standards for collections care in line with best practices for museums.”
