    McManus Zurko played a pivotal role in the renovation and re-adaptation of The College of Wooster's Ebert Art Center, completed in 1997, and, beginning in 2005, restructured the mission of the CWAM to more directly serve the curricular needs of the College. McManus Zurko was selected to participate in the first AAMG/Kellogg Leadership Seminar in 2012, and is currently working on three upcoming projects about puppetry, the selfie, and water in contemporary art.
