Three Rivers Museum Welcomes Amy Bradshaw
The Board of Directors of Muskogee’s Three Rivers Museum is pleased to announce the appointment of Amy Bradshaw (pictured left) to the position of Executive Director of the museum. The appointment comes at the same time as the announcement of the retirement for the present Executive Director Sue Tolbert (pictured right). “After a very serious search for a new director, I am thrilled with our choice,” said Board Chairman John Vecchio. “With an impressive background in the field, Amy will bring new ideas and projects to the museum. We know the community will enjoy working with Amy.” Bradshaw holds a bachelor’s degree in Art History from the University of Oklahoma and a master’s degree in Museum Science and Management from the University of Tulsa. She has prior professional experience in Tulsa, Oklahoma with the Henry Zarrow Center for Art and Education, the Gilcrease Museum and the Tulsa Historical Society. She has also served as a staff member of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. “I am excited to learn more about the collection of Three Rivers Museum,” said Bradshaw. “I look forward to collaborating with the community of Muskogee.” Tolbert served as Executive Director of Three Rivers Museum for over ten years and has been instrumental in growing the museum’s collections, establishing new events and programming and coordinating several projects including the acquisition and renovations of the Oak Grove Schoolhouse and renovations and restorations to the museum’s exterior. Tolbert will maintain a position at the museum upon her retirement where she will principally focus on archiving of the museum’s collections and programming and continuing restoration of the Thomas-Foreman Historical home (owned and operated by the museum). “Sue has left a strong and lasting legacy for the museum,” said Three Rivers Museum Vice-Chairman and former Chairman, Roger Bell. “She has been instrumental in guiding the museum’s efforts in so many areas and we are very excited that she will continue to be part of our museum.” The Three Rivers Museum exists to preserve and present the heritage of Muskogee and the surrounding area. The museum is located at 220 Elgin Street in Muskogee. Hours of operation are Wednesday-Saturday, 10 am-5pm
