Burke Museum wins 2022 National Medal for Museum and Library Service

“At a moment when the purpose and guiding values of museums are being widely reconsidered, the Burke Museum is honored to be recognized for its commitment to serving our communities,” said Gabriela Chavarria, executive director of the Burke Museum. “We see this commitment come to life in the new building, which is designed to bring visitors into close, meaningful engagement with the Burke’s research and collections.” 

 

“Our commitment to community is also reflected in every aspect of our work,” said Julie Stein, Burke Museum emeritus executive director. “We value and prioritize consulting and co-creating beyond the museum so we can better reflect the diverse histories, perspectives, traditions and contributions of our region.”
