Very few people know how much longer the Holter Museum of Art will manage to stay open.
In October, the Board of Directors terminated the contract of executive director Caleb Fey. He was the organization's sixth executive director in seven years.
In September, Fey predicted the museum may have to close by Dec. 2015 due to lack of funds. Also in September, the board announced that expenses exceeded income by $700,000 dating back to 2009. Over the years the board used other available funds to meet the shortfall.
However, the museum has not, as of yet, made any official announcement as to the museum's future. They have been updating their membership as to their progress in re-organizing, but are not yet ready to make a public announcement, according to Holter officials.
Today, we look back at some of the earliest years of the Holter Museum of Art. This is how she was when she was brand new, in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
