Young at Art

Honoring Linda Ewert and the Linda & Wayne Ewert Art Education Fund

When you are visiting the YAM, you may notice a plaque in the Young Families Area honoring Linda Ewert. Linda Ewert was part of the Yellowstone Art Museum for over 30 years in different capacities.

Linda always had a way of making each docent feel they had something unique to bring to the group. Over the years we presented some wonderful docent driven exhibitions and presentations at symposiums under her leadership. Linda was always forward thinking and we always measured up to much larger museums and guiding methods. —YAM Docent Linda Snider
