BETHLEHEM, PA, JANUARY 13, 2023 — Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites (HBMS) is pleased to introduce two new members to its leadership team in the new year: Cari Maslow, Vice President & Managing Director and Craig Larimer, Director of Marketing.

Let's make history!”
Maslow brings a wealth of knowledge and experience leading arts, museum curation, and education. She has worked at several prominent institutions, including the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, where she served as Associate Vice President of Engagement from 2016 to 2020.

Larimer, a lifelong Bethlehem resident, offers extensive experience in communication, community relations, programming, art direction, and branding — plus a passion for HBMS’ rich history and stories.
In his nearly 30-year career at The Morning Call, he has reported, documented, and shaped stories on Lehigh Valley news, entertainment, sports, and business. As Director of Visuals at the newspaper, Larimer was responsible for the development of Page One daily and the artistic direction of all layouts, displays, photo illustrations, and graphics.
“I'm delighted to work with and for the people and places I love the most!” Larimer explains. “I can’t wait to tell and share the stories about Historic Bethlehem’s heritage and promising future.”
