Susan Warner Named Museum of Glass Executive Director/Curator

The Board of Trustees of the Museum of Glass announced the appointment of Susan Warner as Executive Director/Curator effective March 20, 2012.  Warner has served as interim director since January 3 when former director Timothy Close resigned.  Her role as the museum’s curator remains unchanged.

As director, Warner will oversee the continuing development of the Museum of Glass as it begins its tenth year of operation.  “We are very pleased that Susan has agreed to step into the role of Museum of Glass director,” comments Board Chair Steve Loeb.  “Susan knows the institution better than anyone and she is the ideal candidate to lead the organization as we enter into our second decade of service.  She has continually demonstrated her ability to inspire and engage Museum visitors, supporters, artists and staff during her tenure at MOG, and the Board is confident that she is the best person to move the institution forward.”

Warner joined Museum of Glass as the Director of Education in February 2001.  In 2006, she was appointed Director of Public Programs, overseeing the curatorial, education and Hot Shop departments, and in 2009 appointed Deputy Director.  In October 2011, Warner also assumed the role of curator. 

Prior to joining Museum of Glass, Warner was Director of Education at the Seattle Children’s Museum.  She also served as Curator of Education at the StateCapitalMuseum in Olympia and as Assistant Curator, Curator of Decorative Arts at the Dayton Art Institute.
