Each year the Institute for Museum and Library Service bestows the National Medal, the nation’s highest honor for museums and libraries, to a select group of organizations for outstanding service to their communities. You can see the full list of finalists here, but we especially wanted to commend the past and current SITES exhibitors listed below.
Collectively, they have hosted a dozen SITES exhibits since 2001. (The Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Conn. hosts its first exhibit from SITES’ Museum on Main Street program this summer, June 21 – August 3, 2014.)
