Kimberly Kronwall is the Exhibits and Loan Registrar at History Colorado. Previously, she was at the Smithsonian Institution's newest museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where she worked as a Collections Specialist and helped put over 3,000 objects on display across the 14 inaugural exhibitions. She has also worked for the Denver Art Museum, the University of Denver Art Collections, the National Archives, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the National Portrait Gallery, and the Fort Collins Museum of Art. She holds a B.A. in Art History from Colorado State University and an M.A. in Museum Studies from The George Washington University.
Recently, I was able to give a Lunch and Learn style presentation to my fellow History Colorado colleagues about my work and what it takes to put an object on view at the Center. I thought it might be fun to share with all of our audiences to give them a behind-the-scenes look at what Collections and Conservation work at the Center look like.
The History Colorado Center opened a small exhibit honoring the Apollo 11 space mission on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, July 20, 2019. The exhibit is on the 2nd floor near the Stephen H. Hart Research Center entrance featuring two cases.
