“Poor management”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

I volunteered greatly with the young man who was recently leading the museum in a new direction. His voice and leadership was much needed and moved the museum progressively forward. He did it simply because of his love for the arts and the community - for free. He wasn't getting paid or anything and was there for over a year reconnecting a community to a once forgotten jewel. I am still sadly disappointed in the leadership at the museum (the board - Dessie Williams, Haywood Joiner, Maxine Pickens, Jamar Gailes, Taura Denmon and others). I understand that yet again local politics played a great role in his departure from the museum.
