Mike Murawski teaching in the St. Louis Art Museum

Heartiest congratulations to Art Department alumnus Dr. Mike Murawski (BA Art History 1999) who has just beed hired as the Director of Education & Public Programs at the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon.  Since graduating from Truman, Dr. Murawski earned a PhD in Education from American University in Washington D.C. and returned to the St. Louis area for positions first at the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum at Washington University and then was hired as Director of School Services at the St. Louis Art Museum.  While at SLAM, Dr. Murawski developed a popular Museum Education internship, in which a number Truman Art History majors have participated;  in addition, Truman students have been often hosted at SLAM by Dr. Murawski, and have benefitted from campus lectures by both him and his wife, Prof. Bryna Campbell who is a PhD candidate in Art History at Washington University in St. Louis working on early twentieth-century American art.  We will miss having Mike, Bryna, and their family so close by but send them all good wishes as they make this exciting move!
