Museum of Glass curator Melissa G. Post will be resigning from her position after three years in the full-time position. She steps down on Nov. 17, citing family and personal interests as reasons for leaving the museum and relocating to the East Coast.

As the museum’s first full-time, in-house curator in five years, Post was responsible for organizing exhibitions such as last year’s Preston Singletary survey, developing the museum’s fledgling permanent collection and overseeing the Visiting Artist Residency program. She had previously worked as curator at the Mint Museum of Craft and Design in Charlotte, N.C. and at the Corning Museum in New York state. The museum intends to begin a search for a new curator soon.

“For the past three years, Melissa has contributed greatly to establishing the Museum’s curatorial voice through its exhibitions and permanent collection,” says director Tim Close.  “As curator and member of our senior staff, Melissa has brought a great deal of energy, enthusiasm, professionalism and passion to the Museum. We will miss her.”
