Weaving a Legacy
Karen Russell began her service to the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center by joining the Museum’s Board in 2013. She courageously stepped up to serve as president in 2014 during a turning point for the Museum. While the Museum transitioned from one Executive Director to another Karen and her husband, Jim Russell, supported the staff as they worked to serve the community. The influence of the Russells helped the Museum overcome adversity and continue its mission. Their service to the Museum and the Wenatchee Valley community has been invaluable. With this exhibit we celebrate, honor, and thank Jim and Karen Russell for their service to the Museum through sharing the activities Karen (1941 – 2019) loved, most notably weaving and performance art. Join us in celebrating these two dear members of the Museum community! The exhibition opens on Friday, September 3 and runs through Saturday, November 6, 2021.
