The Accidental Cowgirl
When Mitch Mahoney was approached by community members to use his expertise as a long-time archeologist to become director of the Hulett Museum and Art Gallery, it was a natural fit for the Wyoming native. Believing the town of 409 was in need of a museum to preserve its rich and vibrant history, Mitch has made fast work of acquiring, organizing and displaying highly regarded local talent, well-known Western artists, archeological finds, paleontology pieces and Native American culture. With the building undergoing a facelift, Mitch is committed to the museum’s future and recently hosted its first Art Auction and Cocktail Reception.
