SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois State Museum has named a new director.

The state's Department of Natural Resources says Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko has been appointed after a nationwide search. She has served in leadership posts at the Abbe Museum in Maine and the General Lew Wallace Study and Museum in Indiana, which won awards during her tenure.

Colleen Callahan is the director of the Department of Natural Resources and says Catlin-Legutko brings a wealth of "experience, knowledge and energy" to the job.
