Balancing act: Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture leadership strives to emphasize ‘art’ and ‘culture’

The first time Freya Liggett noticed a job opening at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, she let it pass on by. Not only was she enjoying her role as the longtime manager of the Moses Lake Museum and Art Center, but the MAC’s ever-revolving door of leadership over the past several years would give anyone pause. After the hiring of Wes Jessup as the MAC’s executive director two years ago, came a feeling that things were looking up for Spokane’s 100-year-old cultural institution. The next time a position came up, this time as the MAC’s new curator of history, Liggett jumped at the chance to join the team. She has been on the job for two months.
