The Stowe Center counts ourselves fortunate to have a true champion for museums as our representative in Congress. Representative John Larson was honored in Washington, DC this week by the American Association of Museums for his support and advocacy for museums and the cultural community. Congressman Larson's far-sighted work for museums recognizes the important role museums such as the Stowe Center play in communities all across the United States and of course in Connecticut.
The Stowe Center was proud to nominate Congressman Larson for this award. His thoughtful advice and strategic support was pivitol in our 2010 project to preserve our collections vault. We are just one of many Connecticut's many cultural organizations benefiting from his guidance and assistance.
Congratulations and thanks to Congressman Larson!
