WILMINGTON, N.C. – Cape Fear Museum of History and Science is pleased to welcome Darcie Cook as its science content developer and Cordelia Norris as exhibits coordinator. Cook earned her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY and her Ph.D. in immunology from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. She most recently worked at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum as the historic collections associate where she accessioned objects and wrote exhibit content. Cook says of her new position, “I am most excited about communicating science and developing fun, engaging content for the exhibit spaces.”

Norris earned her master’s degree in illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design and undergraduate degrees in studio art, art history and graphic design from the University of Washington in Seattle and Pellissippi State in Knoxville, T.N. In 2010, she founded Luna Creative, a design and illustration studio, and prior to moving to Wilmington in 2016 worked in Washington, D.C. designing graphics for the President’s Daily Briefing and for policy makers on Capitol Hill.

Norris says of her new position, “I’m delighted to join the collections and exhibits team at Cape Fear Museum. The museum has been such a touchstone for me as a relative newcomer and has helped me better understand my new home.”

Museum Director Sheryl Kingery Mays states, “We are delighted to welcome Darcie and Cordelia to our team at Cape Fear Museum. We are fortunate to attract such knowledgeable professionals, who have both the academic background and experience to support our commitment to presenting quality exhibitions and innovative programming.”
