We are thrilled to welcome our new Exhibitions Manager, Devyn McIlraith! Devyn completed her Anthropology undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, where she majored in Archaeology and minored in Studio Art. From there she went on to UW-Milwaukee for her Masters in Anthropology and a graduate certificate in Museum Studies. While in school she completed multiple internships at the Milwaukee Public Museum, then served as the Collections intern for the Washington County Historical Society. She spent nearly seven years working for the Milwaukee Public Museum before being named Collections Manager at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilt and Fiber Arts, ultimately going on to become their Director of Collections & Education.
Outside of work Devyn can be found analyzing details of a prospective cosplay, hoarding various crafting supplies and hoping they will eventually become useful, reading fantasy novels, baking something, or saying hello to other people’s dogs while on walks.
