Sericia Cole, who's been the interim director of the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center since March, when she replaced previous director H.L. McGill, has been named the permanent director. Her hiring was announced by Department of Arkansas Heritage director Cathie Matthews.

Before joining the museum, Cole served as director of minority affairs for Gov. Mike Beebe's office for two years. Prior to that, she was director of public relations at Philander Smith College.

The museum's exhibits tell the story of African-Americans in Arkansas business, politics and the arts from 1870 to the present. A special exhibition, “A Voice through the Viewfinder: Images of Arkansas’ Black Community by Ralph Armstrong," runs through Jan. 5.
