NAMOS is proud to announce that it will be moving to a new home with the Children's Museum of Indianapolis! We are excited to be a part of the new Riley Children's Health Sports Legends Experience at such a renowned organization as the Children's Museum. For more information, visit our website www.nationalartmuseumofsport.org.
Unfortunately we lost our dear friend and former director, Ann Rein, this past week. Ann began working with NAMOS when the museum moved to the University Place Conference Center at IUPUI in 1994, serving as executive director until retiring in 2011. Even in retirement, she continued to play a vital role with NAMOS as a board member, volunteer, and treasurer until her losing her battle with cancer at the age of 86. She was truly an unforgettable and kindhearted person with a wealth of knowledge and wonderful stories. We are deeply saddened at this time, and our thoughts are with her family during this time.
