Hood Quarterly, spring/summer 2010

It is with great sadness that we note the death of Vicky Ransmeier, docent and friend of the museum, on October 21, 2009. Vicky was deeply committed to the museum and its educational mission. She radiated enthusiasm as she shared her love and knowledge of art with visitors to the Hood during her six years as a docent.
