NORTH NEWTON, KAN. -- Kauffman Museum’s "K is for Kansas" exhibit received its third major award Oct. 29 at the annual meeting of the Kansas Museums Association in McPherson. Chuck Regier, curator of exhibits, accepted the KMA Award for Excellence on behalf of the Kauffman Museum exhibit team.
Said Kauffman Museum director Rachel Pannabecker, "This award means a lot to us because it comes from our colleagues here in Kansas."
At the KMA meeting, Regier also participated in a panel session on traveling exhibits. The panel included Kim Legleiter of the Stauth Memorial Museum in Montezuma, which regularly books traveling exhibits produced by Kauffman Museum.
The "K is for Kansas" exhibit that generated the KMA Award of Excellence is at the Smoky Hill Museum in Salina through Jan. 9, 2005.
