Mellon-Funded “New Initiatives in Curatorial Training” Program Renewed

We’re thrilled to announce that the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has generously renewed its support of our “New Initiatives in Curatorial Training” program for the next four years!

Since Fall 2012, the program has allowed the Department to offer intensive curatorial seminars at leading New York museums. These include one on European textiles at the Metropolitan Museum of Art co-taught by Professor Amanda Wunder and Melinda Watt, Associate Curator for European textiles, and another examining European painting of the 1930s at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), co-taught by Professor Romy Golan and Danielle Johnson, Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Painting and Sculpture.

The Mellon Foundation has also made possible year-long paid internships and fellowships at the Metropolitan Museum, MoMA, Newark Museum, and Dia Art Foundation that immerse students in curatorial practice and museum collections.

Our sincere thanks to the Mellon Foundation for continuing to support this important curatorial training initiative!
