REDLANDS - The Redlands Historical Glass Museum recently named Bill Brakemeyer as its new president.

Brakemeyer will serve as a successor for Frank Herendeen who served as president of the museum's board for nine years before retiring from the organization next month.
Brakemeyer, a resident of Riverside, has several ties to the organization and the city of Redlands. He joined the museum's board three years ago to quench a thirst of knowledge and research on the art of glass blowing. He also serves as an organist for a Redlands church and has done so for more than 20 years.
His love of glass art drew him to the museum, which resides in the historic Seymour home built in 1095. Inside, hundreds of American glassware pieces produced during the 19th and 20th centuries sit, waiting for their chance to be gawked at by fans of the art.
In his newly appointed position, Brakemeyer said he has several ideas on how he is hoping to draw eyes to the museum this year and during his term as president. He hopes to continue building a partnership with the city council and is planning a variety of events, including fundraising efforts, to raise attendance.
Since his time on the board, Brakemeyer said the group has been working on activities targeting youngsters to learn more about the art of glass blowing and what the museum's valuable assets are.
Other goals include trying to get more recognition in place for the museum, he said.
"I want to encourage people who don't know about it to come visit," Brakemeyer said. "I'm going to contact university professors to see if there's an interest for their students to do research and projects about the museum, and do some features stories that can be in... local antique papers."
The museum operates on an all-volunteer basis and board members train docents who greet visitors to give tours of the museums, talk about the home and pieces during scheduled group tours and to visitors who swing by during normal business hours.
Brakemeyer said the board is also looking to fill a few vacant seats for the museum's foundation board of directors, which, when full, can be composed of 14 members. A quarterly newsletter is published to keep members and the public informed of new displays and improvements to the museum's collection.
"The collection itself is so wonderful in terms of showing what (the museum) has," he said. "It's the only museum like it west of the Mississippi and to have that in this area, that resource, is just wonderful.
"We just need to let people in the community know that it's here (because) we want to see people more aware of it," he added.
