The City of Dickinson has hired Angela Rayne as the new Museum Coordinator for the Dickinson Museum Center.

As coordinator, Rayne will oversee the operations of the entire museum complex, including Prairie Outpost Park, the Pioneer Machinery Building, the Joachim Regional Museum, and the Dickinson Dinosaur Museum. She will start her duties on Monday, Feb. 8.

 

“We are so excited to welcome Angela to the Museum Center and to the community,” said City Administrator Shawn Kessel. “She brings with her a wealth of experience, energy and vision for the future of the museum complex.”

 

Rayne comes to Dickinson from Evergreen, Colo., where she most recently held the position of executive director of Humphrey History Park and Museum, a living history museum on 35 acres that includes a 1930s ranch.  She holds a master’s degree in Anthropology/Museum Science and Archaeology, and a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology with a minor in Geology.  

Rayne has held numerous leadership positions, including executive directorships at the Houston Fire Museum in Houston, Texas, the Denver Firefighters Museum in Denver, Colo., and the Hiwan Homestead Museum in Evergreen, Colo.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the Dickinson Museum Center and I am looking forward to developing stunning new exhibits, with help from the community, that tell fascinating stories about Dickinson and North Dakota,” Rayne said.

The Stark County Historical Society and the Southwestern North Dakota Museum Foundation will host a reception to welcome Rayne at the Joachim Regional Museum, 188 Museum Dr. E. in Dickinson on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 4-6 p.m. The public is invited to this free event. Refreshments will be served.
