Vincent Varga Announces Retirement
Updated: Apr 16, 2019
After 40 years in the museum and public gallery sector, Museum Director Vincent Varga has announced that he is retiring and leaving the Whyte Museum in late June 2019. He served the Whyte and the Bow Valley community for five and a half years.
Through his leadership the Whyte Museum has engaged in a strategic, operational, fundraising, program and community renewal culminating in the highly successful 50th Anniversary exhibitions, events and celebrations in 2018. Vincent asserts that this work was accomplished through the passion, dedication and commitment of the Museum team working together.
Vincent says, “I believe that the Museum has become more broadly recognized across the country and within the Bow River Valley. I would like to thank the staff, artists, lenders, donors, funders, community partners and all those who are joining with us to keep the spirit and intent of Peter and Catharine’s founding vision for their Museum alive and vibrant into the future.”
Vincent and Susanne Repstock will be moving to Lethbridge where they plan to engage with and contribute to the arts and cultural fabric of their new community.
"On behalf of the board we would like to thank Vincent for his outstanding commitment, dedication and professionalism that he brought to the Whyte over the past five and a half years. We wish Vincent and Susanne all the best of health and happiness going forward in their new adventure."
— Marino DiManno, Chair of the Peter and Catharine Whyte Foundation
