As director of communications for the Valentine Museum in Richmond, Virginia, Eric Steigleder ’10 helps area residents better understand the region, its history, and one another.
Through its museum exhibitions, well-tended collections, history tours, and public programs, the Valentine brings people together for conversations that aren’t always easy.
“From a history perspective it can be difficult enough to talk about some of these complicated stories,” Steigleder told Richmond’s Style Magazine last year. “But it’s even more important to talk about them in a way that helps us address the issues of today.”
The magazine recognized Steigleder – who majored in history at Mary Washington – as one of its Top 40 Under 40 in 2019.
