About Our Curator of Collections and Exhibits:

Nosek has been exploring history and culture throughout her career.
through the countless objects left behind by the people who lived it.
Using the stories found in museum collections and working closely with
community members, she has engaged visitors through dynamic exhibits and
programs. Her love of museums and their use of informal education to
build bridges between people has taken her on adventures from Delaware
to Hawaii spending most of her time here in Colorado. After getting an
undergraduate degree in cultural anthropology at Hamline University in
St. Paul, Minnesota, and her masters in history museum studies from the
Cooperstown Graduate Program (SUNY system), Elizabeth has worked for
local historical societies, natural history museums, the National Park
Service, living history museums, children’s museums, as well as
traditional history and art museums to preserve and care for these very
unique collections being held in the public’s trust. Elizabeth loves
exploring museums and acts as a peer reviewer for the American Alliance
of Museums. Her work experiences have enabled her to author several
professional articles, a book on Interpretive Master Planning, and a
chapter for AASLH’s upcoming book, An Accessible Past: Making Historic
Sites Accessible. While a committed museum nerd, Elizabeth also enjoys
exploring food history, decorative arts, all things Disney, choral
music, exploring Colorado, meeting new friends, and making a difference.
