The 2010 IMTY Award Goes to the Senior Staff of the Science Museum of Minnesota!
The Board of IMTAL recognizes the importance of decision makers to the future of museum theatre. The IMTY award was established to recognize CEOs or Senior Staff members who have shown strong support for museum theatre. Joe Imholte, Director of Special Exhibits, will accept the award at the IMTAL Luncheon at the 2010 AAM annual meeting in Los Angeles. The senior staff of the Science Museum of Minnesota have supported museum theatre for over three decades. The museum's leadership recognizes that museum theatre engages museum visitors in a personally relevant experience, providing a pathway for life-long museum patronage and nurturing the role of museums as a community meeting place. It takes the entirety of museum leadership to sustain a successful museum theatre program. IMTAL is proud to honor Joe Imholte and the Senior Staff of the Science Museum of Minnesota!
IMTAL hosts a luncheon at AAM each year to provide networking opportunities for new and existing members and other interested parties and to discuss current topics in museum theatre. The IMTY award is also presented during the luncheon. Please plan to make it a part of your AAM schedule! (Advance purchase of tickets through AAM is required.)
