 “These awards put each of the winning museums in very good company at the top ranks of our region’s institutions,” NEMA Executive Director Dan Yaeger said, also in the release. “Graphic communication is vital to connecting a museum with its community, so their success with publications reflects their success in their overall operations as well.”
