Butler Institute Names Braatz Membership Director

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Sydney Braatz is the newly named membership director at the Butler Institute of American Art.

She began her work at the museum as an inventory specialist working with Liz Hicks and Alvin Perez, doing condition reports and taking inventory of the Butler’s permanent collection.

Braatz is still working with the collection, but very recently became membership director following the untimely passing of Jean Shreffler who worked at the Butler for over 20 years.

Braata grew up in Poland and is a product of the Poland school system. She came to the Butler after graduating from Penn State University with a degree in art history.

Outside of work she enjoys photography and watercolor painting.
