WKU is removing the “interim” label from the title of its Kentucky Museum Director.
Brent Bjorkman hasbeen named the museum’s director after serving as the interim leader since August. The Folk Studies Professor also serves as Director of the Kentucky Folklife Program.
In announcing the decision, WKU Provost Gordon Emslie said in a statement that Bjorkman displayed the ability to lead the Kentucky Museum towards its goal of achieving accreditation with the American Alliance of Museums.
The Kentucky Museum houses permanent and traveling art exhibits as well as historical documents from across the region.
