Former marketing manager John Sterr has been appointed interim executive director of the Charles Allis and Villa Terrace Art Museums, the position previously held by Maria Costello for five years.
Sterr has directed the museum’s marketing for the past three years. In that role, he established the Milwaukee Museum Mile, a creative partnership bringing together the CAVT Museums, the Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Museum of Wisconsin Art at Saint John’s on the Lake, and the North Point Lighthouse.
The partnership’s goal is to boost the profiles of all five member organizations. According to CAVT Museums president Claudia Egan, Sterr’s knowledge of the organization will allow the group to look for a new executive director at Villa Terrace without any lapse of services or programming.
