Ann-Mary J. Lutzick, director of the Old Trails Museum in Winslow, has been elected to the Museum Association of Arizona’s Board of Directors as the Northern Region representative. The Museum Association of Arizona (MAA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment and support of Arizona’s museum community.

During her two-year term, Lutzick will act as liaison between the MAA and its membership in Apache, Coconino, Mohave, Navajo and Yavapai counties. In addition to facilitating two-way communication between the organization and its members in the field, Lutzick will publicize MAA activities and encourage new and ongoing membership.

Lutzick became director of the Old Trails Museum in November 2010. She was on staff at the Arizona Humanities Council (AHC) from 1999 through 2008, and first came in contact with the museum as one of six host sites for AHC’s 2007-08 tour of the Smithsonian traveling exhibition “Between Fences.” In addition to her half-time work at the museum, Lutzick presents on Winslow-related topics as a member of AHC’s Road Scholars Speakers Bureau.

The Old Trails Museum is extending its open hours, which are now from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays. The museum is owned and operated by the Winslow Historical Society.
