Hannah Fox

Silk Mill Project Director

Meet Hannah, the Project Director for The Silk Mill. To find out more about Hannah, we asked her some questions, find out her answers here…

  1. Many of the people that Joseph Wright painted chose to be depicted with an object that tells us something about them as a person. What object would you choose and why?
    My grandfather’s Panama Hat that is nearly 50 years old and still looks pretty good! That isn’t why it represents me though… I feel that I’ve worn and continue to wear a number of hats in the various roles I have had in my life so far. Despite an eclectic childhood, I was close to my grandfather and think of him when I wear it.

  2. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
    A fox, obviously!

  3. What makes you happy?
    Being in the Big Sur in California with my family.

  4. What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
    Take photographs, watch movies, walk my dog, read books, travel, visit other museums, sleep.
