ASHoF Hires a New Curator
The Aurora Sports Hall of Fame recently hired Laura Beaton as its curator. Laura replaced Catherine Richards, ASHoF’s first curator and the person who was responsible for designing and building the Hall’s inaugural, and current, exhibit on the 3rd Floor of the Town Hall.
With regards to displaying artefacts, the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame is vey much like a museum and as such requires the services of someone to collect, oversee, interpret and showcase the Hall’s Honoured member artefacts. Currently, this position is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
Laura has collaborated previously with the Hall on the temporary exhibits that ASHoF displays in the Skylight Gallery. Those are usually erected in November to coincide with the Induction Dinner celebrations, which, for 2 years and again this year, take place on the 1st Wednesday of November.
