A yet-to-be-named Bible museum owned by Hobby Lobby's Green family moved one step closer to its anticipated 2017 opening in Washington, D.C., with the hiring of two top-level management executives.
The Museum of the Bible, a nonprofit organization that will oversee the museum, hired David Trobisch as director of the museum's collections and Steve Bickley as vice president of marketing, finance and administration, according to a March 6 news release.
The museum, which will focus on the story, history and impact of the Bible, will be located in a reconstructed 400,000-square-foot space that formerly was the Washington Design Center, just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol....
I love it! This is great news! I really like the Green family, based on the (short)book I read about their business philosophy, though I have not had the privilege of going to one of their stores. And the location is even better--good old DC, full of museums, parks, statues, circles, wide avenues, heat and humidity in the summer and now cold and snow in the winter! Hail to the Redskins! Hail victory! Braves on the warpath! Fight for old DC! Sorry, had to throw that in, got excited about the land of my birth (taxation without representation).
