On the web this week...New Administrator Hired

After reviewing many applicants and interviewing a select three, the American Gothic House Center Board hired Molly Moser to begin work on August 3 as the new American Gothic House Center Administrator.

Originally from Guttenberg, Iowa, Molly graduated from the University of Iowa with a Studio Art Major, Business Administrator Minor and Museum Studies Certificate. While going to school, Molly worked at the Old Capitol Museum, Blank Honors Center Galleries, Office of the State Archeologist, University of Iowa Museum of Art, Des Moines Art Center and the Wilson Home of Guttenberg. Most recently, Molly spent this summer as a member of the Ginnell Artist Residency Program, which was recently highlighted by the Des Moines Register.

There will be an opportunity to meet Molly at the Humanities Iowa Lecture "Early Depression Dilemmas of Rural Iowa, October 1929 to November 1932" by Lisa Ossian at the Eldon Library Hall that has been rescheduled for Thursday, August 12 at 7 pm. Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
