2016 Legacy Award
The Legacy Award honors those who make a significant, positive impact on Michigan’s arts, history, culture or environment.
We are proud to present the 2016 Legacy Award to Gene Jenneman and the Dennos Museum Center in recognition of 25 years of arts inspiration, collaboration, accessibility and leadership in northern Michigan and beyond. In 1988 Gene Jenneman was hired by Northwestern Michigan College to supervise the planning, construction and direction of the Dennos Museum in Traverse City.
The museum opened in 1991, and Gene continues to serve as its founding Executive Director. While overseeing the building of the Dennos Museum, Jenneman became a founding board member of Michigan Legacy Art Park.
