CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (JULY, 2021) – After 13 years of service, AMST Development Director, Sheri Emerick, will retire on September 30, 2021. Sheri has played an instrumental role in fostering and growing relationships with foundations and donors who have been long time supporters of the Museum; as well as forming new partnerships with organizations that feel passionate about arts education and AMST’s mission to advance the awareness, knowledge, appreciation, and enjoyment of the visual arts for residents and visitors of South Texas.”The Art Museum of South Texas is a wonderful, beautiful, and important place in our community,” says Emerick. “Through the continued support of thousands of individuals, businesses, foundations, and your tax dollars at work, we have managed, through economic strain, multiple hurricanes, and a pandemic to continue to thrive and excel. I can’t stress enough the love I have for this institution, our staff, and the members of the community who help bring art alive for us all.”
It is with bittersweet sentiment that we celebrate Sheri’s exceptional career with the Art Museum of South Texas and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. While we share in her excitement in entering the next chapter, Sheri will be missed tremendously.
Thank you, Sheri, for your love for the Art Museum and your dedication and service to this remarkable institution and to the Corpus Christi community.
