VERNON - There’s a new face at the Vernon Museum.
Her name is Tracy Satin, and she is the new curator for the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives.
The former curator, Ron Candy, served as executive director and curator for more than 23 years and announced he was moving on from the position in May of this year.
Satin has a long history in museum work, including working as a curator for the University of Alberta’s Classics Museum, doing archeological excavations in Italy, and spending time as a conservation consultant in Rome.
From 2004 to 2006 she was the conservator at the Kelowna Museums, after which she became the associate director in charge of collections and conservation for the Kelowna Museums until 2012. She was then hired by the Westbank First Nations Snc?wips Museum as the heritage officer.
“Tracy will be a welcome addition to the museum and archives, especially as we look forward to a new multi-purpose facility to house the museum and art gallery in the future,” museum board chair Dan Stuart says in a media release.
Satin will start work on Aug. 15.
