Yellowstone Art Museum

The Yellowstone Art Museum's executive director for more than 11 years plans to move on from the museum before the year's end. 

A press release issued Thursday night by the Yellowstone Art Museum states that Robyn G. Peterson will "leave the museum in December." 

Peterson has been the museum's executive director since March 2006, according to the release. She "will be moving out of state to pursue new projects," the release says. 

The release notes Peterson's launch of a capital and endowment campaign among other achievements, including how she "conceived and oversaw the construction of the Visible Vault." 

The vault's construction was completed in 2010 and allows visitors to view the museum's collection and also see artists at work.

Additionally, the release credits Peterson's work rebranding the YAM and leading it to achieve "national accreditation." 

"The opportunity to work in such a generous and supportive community has been unmatched," Peterson said in the release. "I'm pleased to be able to leave the museum in a strong position, confident that the community will continue to ensure that the YAM remains a centerpiece of its thriving cultural environment."
