Linda Steigleder, x200 President & CEO
After a year-long, nationwide search, the ..., 1 July 2012 [cached]
After a year-long, nationwide search, the board of trustees at Hancock Shaker Village has hired Linda M. Steigleder, an arts administrator from western North Carolina, as the new president and CEO of the living history museum.
Steigleder will officially take the helm on July 16, replacing Ellen Spear, who left the position in March 2011.
Steigleder, in her mid-50's, has 30 years of experience in history and art museums, primarily running facilities in eastern New York, Boston and the Hartford area from the mid 1980s to 2008.
Most recently, the Virginia native oversaw the construction and eventual operation of The Bascom, a $13 million visual arts complex in Highlands, N.C., near the South Carolina border. Steigleder was its executive director from January 2008 to January 2011, leaving that position to do consulting work.
The board feels Steigleder will be a good fit for one of the area's major tourist attractions, which draws 70,000 people annually.
"Linda, in partnership with [our] staff, will bring [the] Hancock Shaker Village visitor experience to a new
Steigleder is returning to museum leadership in part because, she said, she was intrigued by Hancock Shaker Village when she visited a decade ago while living in Connecticut.
"There is so much practice and skills there relative to today," she said in a phone interview from her North Carolina home.
With the help of museum staff, trustees and especially the volunteers, whom Steigleder calls the "heart and soul" of the museum, she looks forward to helping move 19th-century traditions into a 21st-century world.
"I believe it's important to preserve our museums and parks as they give us a more well-rounded life," Steigleder said.

Linda Steigleder, Executive Director Initiatives during Steigleder's tenure (beginning January 2008) have included construction of The Bascom's new six acre, six building campus, improvements to educational programs and exhibitions, and capital campaign fundraising. Steigleder brings credentials as an art historian, fund development professional, and historic site administrator. Growing up in Virginia her interests focused on landscape design, math and economics, but "one look at a Paul Cezanne painting at the National Gallery in Washington, DC, turned all that on end". Her art history master's and bachelor's degrees are from Syracuse University and The College of William and Mary. Her training includes studies with curators of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum. Prior to The Bascom, she was director and CEO of Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, CT, a 152-acre estate with a premier French Impressionist paintings collection and formal gardens and earlier she was assistant director of Storm King Art Center, America's premier outdoor sculpture museum.

"The mission of Hancock Shaker Village is to bring the Shaker story to life and preserve it for future generations," said Hancock Shaker Village President Linda Steigleder.
