EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
After nearly 38 years of distinguished service as Director for the Evansville Museum, John Streetman retired at the end of 2012 and was named Director Emeritus by the Board of Trustees. To celebrate the career of Streetman, the Museum will hold both a dinner and a public reception in his honor.
The tribute celebration dinner will be Friday, January 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Walnut Room in the Aztar Conference Center. The dinner will honor all of his accomplishments throughout his extraordinary career at the Evansville Museum. The night will feature music, speakers, and a few surprises all focusing on this extraordinary leader. Paid reservations are required for this event. Limited reservations are available for this event, please make reservations as soon as possible by calling the Museum at (812) 425-2406.
A tribute public reception will be held Sunday, January 20 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. in the Old Gallery of the Evansville Museum. The community is invited to this free reception which will include music by the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra's Eykamp Quartet, refreshments, and select speakers. This event is an opportunity for the public to congratulate Streetman on his retirement and honor him for his commitment to the community.
According to board president Krohn, "During Streetman's tenure, the museum has seen unprecedented growth, becoming widely recognized as one of the most dynamic general museums in the United States. Since his arrival in Evansville in 1975, the museum has undergone two extensive interior renovations; has completed one major expansion; and has seen the construction of the Evansville Museum Transportation Center (EMTRAC). Galleries have been established for both permanent collections and temporary exhibitions in each of the museum's disciplines of art, history and science. The late 2013 completion of the museum's new south wing, along with substantial improvements to the existing building is the last – and most significant – of those projects."
Although the Evansville Museum has always been John Streetman's top priority during his directorship, a number of other community organizations have benefited from his service. Among these, he has served as two-term President of the University of Southern Indiana's Society for the Arts and Humanities; two-term President of the Evansville Arts and Education Council (now Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana); President of the University of Evansville's Theatre Society; President of Civic Theatre; President of AIDS Resource Group of Evansville; and two-term Senior Warden at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. He has also been a board member of the University of Evansville's Harlaxton Society, as well as that institution's Friends of Music, where he created the annual "Rite of Spring" gala, designed to showcase the talents of both the Music Department's Faculty and Students, while also broadening public awareness of the program's quality and raising funds for special projects.
