New Door County Maritime Museum Executive Director Kevin Osgood is looking forward to telling stories again in a museum setting. Prior to his time as the news director at a Green Bay television station, Osgood worked for a group of companies partnering with small museums to put together exhibits. Osgood says he enjoys the different ways of storytelling that museum exhibits can provide.
Joining Osgood is Sam Perlman, who was named the museum’s deputy director and development manager. With fundraising well underway for the museum’s Maritime Tower project, Perlman looks forward to having its three locations in Gills Rock, Sturgeon Bay, and Baileys Harbor more engaged in the community.
Osgood and Perlman replace former executive director Amy Paul, who left the museum earlier this month. The Door County Maritime Museum will celebrate three major anniversaries in the coming year, including its 50th year of operation.
