JHM names new director

| April 17, 2018

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Library Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Bush as Director of the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. Her current roles at the museum include graphic designer, collections registrar and exhibit coordinator. She takes over the position of director on April 22 upon the retirement of current director, Patti Malenke.

Jennifer Bush began her career at JHM in 2010 as the Assistant Registrar. Over the years she has shown her skills in art and design and was named Exhibit Coordinator in 2016. Jennifer is a graduate of Licking Valley High School. She earned her Batchelor’s Degree in Art from The Ohio State University in 2008. She has used her art background to promote art and expand art-centered programming at JHM. Jennifer’s passion for creativity extends outside of JHM as well. She is an active member of the Columbus-based New Vision Dance Company, performing in multiple genres of dance, and has exhibited her artwork, both sculpture and acrylic paintings, at local art exhibits.

Jennifer and her husband are raising two children in rural Licking County where they tend to their gardens and raise chickens and honey bees. She and her family enjoy spending their free time hiking, rock climbing, and exploring the history Ohio has to offer. Jennifer is thrilled to be named Director of JHM and is looking forward to continuing the work of the women that came before her, adding her artistic background to keep the museum relevant for the generations to come.
