10:45 – 11:45:  Beyond Dürer: Becoming a Museum Director

Speaker: Dr. Katherine Crawford Luber, Nivin & Duncan MacMillan Director of MIA

Born and raised in Texas, Katie’s career path combines traditional educational and work experiences with out-of- the-box aspects that fostered her unique perspectives on management and leadership. Katie will share art and anecdotes from her beginnings as a research associate at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, her dissertation on Albrecht Dürer, her time as CEO of an organic spice company and her museum leadership experiences prior to arriving at Mia in January 20220—at the start of what proved to be a most extraordinary year.

12:00 – 1:15  Lunch

1:15 – 2:15 Cycles of History in Hennepin County

Speaker: John Crippen, Executive Director of Hennepin Museum

We’re living in a time of intense change, and yet our shared history continues to inform our world. Crippen will provide an overview of the work of Hennepin History Museum—our neighbor across the park—and highlight stories of how the people of our city and region have managed the interplay between tradition and change, old and new, and how key decisions can have ripple effects through time.
Before coming to Hennepin History Museum in 2019, John spent over 25 years in various positions at the Minnesota Historical Society.
