About Our Curator of Collections:
Elizabeth Nosek has been exploring history and culture throughout her career. through the countless objects left behind by the people who lived it. Using the stories found in museum collections and working closely with community members, she has engaged visitors through dynamic exhibits and programs. Her love of museums and their use of informal education to build bridges between people has taken her on adventures from Delaware to Hawaii spending most of her time here in Colorado. After getting an undergraduate degree in cultural anthropology at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota, and her masters in history museum studies from the Cooperstown Graduate Program (SUNY system), Elizabeth has worked for local historical societies, natural history museums, the National Park Service, living history museums, children’s museums, as well as traditional history and art museums to preserve and care for these very unique collections being held in the public’s trust. Elizabeth loves exploring museums and acts as a peer reviewer for the American Alliance of Museums. Her work experiences have enabled her to author several professional articles, a book on Interpretive Master Planning, and a chapter for AASLH’s upcoming book, An Accessible Past: Making Historic Sites Accessible. While a committed museum nerd, Elizabeth also enjoys exploring food history, decorative arts, all things Disney, choral music, exploring Colorado, meeting new friends, and making a difference.
