AVALON, CATALINA ISLAND - The Catalina Island Museum announces the upcoming departure of its Executive Director, Dr. Michael De Marsche. Planned from the beginning of his tenure, Dr. De Marsche joined the Catalina Island Museum in 2010 and immediately went to work re-invigorating the museum. Under his leadership the museum’s former location in the Avalon Casino was completely renovated. In addition, special exhibitions traveling from other collections were introduced to the Catalina Island Museum’s exhibitions schedule. As a result, museum membership climbed steadily from 300 to nearly 2,000.
