CAREY CRANE JOINS EXHIBITS STAFF

The Calvert Marine Museum is pleased to announce the appointment of Carey Crane as Curator of Exhibits. Relocating from Las Cruces, New Mexico, Crane brings over 30 years of exhibit experience in Zoos, Natural History, and Health and Science museums.

Crane grew up close to Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida and graduated from the University of Florida in the early 1980’s with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. After graduation, Crane learned the fundamentals/basics of exhibit fabrication at the Florida Museum of Natural History and a locally based exhibits company. Relocating to North Carolina, Crane established his own company and designed, fabricated and installed exhibit components in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, including the Eastern Shore. His public service career in exhibits later took him to the North Carolina Museum of History, the North Carolina Zoological Park, and as Exhibits Curator for the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Washington D.C.

The past 11 years have been spent in New Mexico, with seven of those at the City of Las Cruces Museum System. As Director and Senior Curator, Crane led staff in the interpretation, design, production, and installation of exhibits for four city museums: the Las Cruces Museum of Art; Branigan Cultural Center, Museum of Nature & Science, and the Railroad Museum. Prior to that time he was as at the New Mexico Museum of Space History.

“Crane’s artistic experience and knowledge make him a perfect addition to the Calvert Marine Museum staff,” said Doug Alves, Museum Director. Crane is happy to be back on the East Coast and on the water again and being at the Calvert Marine Museum is an “opportunity beyond expectations.”
