Sentinel of the Plains Dedication Ceremony

As you all know, the passing of Forrest E. Mars, Jr. in 2016 threw The Brinton Museum into a financial tailspin. Through the efforts of the Board of Directors, the management and staff of The Brinton during 2017, the museum ended the year with a loss that was one-half of what was initially projected. For 2018, the operations budget has been balanced and the museum is now financially in a good position moving forward. Keep in mind that all of this has been accomplished without cutting our programs or services to museum visitors.

We are hugely appreciative of all that you, our Brinton members and donors, have done to support the museum. Your generosity has helped get us over this hurdle and ensured that our institution will continue. We are very excited about the future of The Brinton. Thank you!

The photo above is from the dedication of Gerald Shippen’s sculpture, The Sentinel. This dramatic sculpture graces the entrance of the Forrest E. Mars, Jr. Building and is a testimony to Northern Wyoming’s Plains Indian heritage. The Brinton Museum is very grateful for supporters who share our vision.

2018 is going to be a wonderful year at The Brinton. We hope you to see you at the museum!
