About the Hansford Gallery

The Hansford Gallery is named for the museum's longtime curator Michele Hansford. Upon her retirement in 2016, the museum's Board of Directors voted to name the gallery in her honor. Hansford served as museum curator for over thirty years and oversaw the museum's development. She continues to oversee special projects at the museum.
