New Guest Curator Program at the Kennedy Museum of Art

The Kennedy Museum of Art announces a Guest Curator Program, an opportunity for members of Ohio University and surrounding communities to engage in the creative and central role of the curatorial process supported by the expertise and resources of the academic museum staff. 

The Museum is accepting proposals for educational, engaging and innovative exhibitions on a rolling basis. Selected guest curators will work one-on-one with Museum staff to develop exhibitions from start to finish. The Museum staff will work with guest curators to help develop exhibition proposals from start to finish. 

As an academic museum with a teaching mission, the Museum provides Ohio University students, faculty and staff, as well as the greater community, engaging and thought-provoking encounters, and serves as a learning laboratory for its visitors. This new Guest Curator Program represents a chance to build new partnerships with individual departments at Ohio University, faculty and students, as well as the surrounding community, and ultimately expand the connection between the Museum and its visitors.

The Museum is planning to hold information sessions April 4 and April 24 at public library locations in Athens and Nelsonville. Interested members of the community are invited to attend, to receive more information and ask questions about the curatorial proposal submission process. Light refreshments will be served.
