Museum Educator: Visitor and Volunteer Services
Lynda Palma’s career as a museum professional began as a registrar for the BYU art collection over twenty years ago and continued as collections manager when the BYU Museum of Art was built in 1993. For the last eight years, Lynda has worked primarily in museum education and public programs. She has presented several papers and workshops in the United States and Canada on museum registration procedures and education methodology, taught in the music and humanities departments at BYU and Utah Valley University, co-directed a six-month Vienna Semester abroad program, acted as assistant editor for the quarterly international bulletin Music Education for the Handicapped and corresponding symposia proceedings, and served for thirteen years as the administrator of the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition. Her broad experiences continue to inform her multi-disciplinary approach to museum education.
