 Heather Bullach Joins Massillon Museum Team

Heather Bullach has joined the staff of the Massillon Museum to orchestrate the traveling exhibition, Imagining a Better World: The Artwork of Nelly Toll.  The original version of this exhibition debuted at MassMu in March 2014, and funding was received by an Institute of Museum and Library Services “Museums for America” grant to facilitate production of a traveling version, which will premiere at the Goodwin Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, this September.

Bullach will be responsible for identifying venues nationwide to which promotional materials regarding the exhibit will be sent.  She will also coordinate the rentals for the exhibit, liaising with the venues who will host the show. This traveling exhibition is expected to not only help disseminate the inspiring story of Nelly Toll, a child survivor of the Holocaust, but will earn the Massillon Museum national recognition for its efforts in preserving and sharing this story.

"I am so honored to play a part in launching the Nelly Toll exhibit for travel, and I'm thrilled to be joining such a fantastic team at the Massillon Museum," Bullach said.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in art with emphases in painting, drawing, and graphic design at Malone University in 2011 and has worked with Translations Art Gallery for the past five years, assisting with the installation and details of changing exhibitions.

Bullach was awarded Outstanding Senior in Visual Arts and The Mary Ellen McFadden Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts in 2011 and The Ohio Watercolor Society 2010 Scholarship.

A resident of Dalton, she is a portrait and figurative artist whose work most often focuses on capturing her subject’s accurate likeness and unique individuality. She uses a variety of media, most frequently oils and watercolors. Her work is on display at Second April Galerie and Studios in Canton and can be seen at heatherbullach.com.

The Massillon Museum receives operating support from the Ohio Arts Council and ArtsinStark.

The Massillon Museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East in downtown Massillon. For more information, call 330.833.4061 or visit massillonmuseum.org.
