ST. PETERSBURG, FLA.- The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art announced the appointment of Lise Dube-Scherr as its Deputy Director for Art & Education, starting on May 20, 2024. With an extensive background in art and historic house museum management, Dube-Scherr brings over 20 years of expertise to her new role at the museum.

Together, they will advance the museum’s mission to provide transformative art and educational opportunities that reflect the rich heritage of the American West.

"Lise’s deep experience and commitment to art education are exactly what The James Museum needs as we strive to enhance our exhibition offerings and educational programs," said Robin Nicholson, Executive Director of The James Museum.

She recently served as the Dean of Continuing and Professional Studies at the Delaware College of Art and Design. She has garnered a reputation for her inclusive approach to museum management and community engagement, highlighted by her extensive experience working with diverse cultural and historical collections. Her previous roles have seen her effectively integrate art and education to create impactful visitor experiences that engage a broad audience spectrum. Dube-Scherr's leadership at institutions like International Arts & Artists and The Richard H. Driehaus Museum has been marked by significant increases in both visitation and community involvement. Her efforts have consistently focused on enhancing the educational reach and curatorial excellence of the museums she has served, making her a valuable addition to The James Museum team as they continue to explore new ways to connect with the community and expand their offerings.

“I am incredibly excited to join The James Museum and look forward to working with Robin and the rest of the team to expand our impact through a wide range of dynamic exhibitions and educational initiatives that highlight and celebrate the museum’s rich collections," said Dube-Scherr.
