Exhibit Manager & Assistant Curator

On 23, Feb 2013 | In Work-For-Hire Projects

My work with Cornell Library was two-pronged:

  • After working closely with the staff of Cornell Library’s Division of Rare & Manuscript Collections on the Alison Mason Kingsbury Project, I was invited to manage a unique loan exhibit for the department featuring items from alum & Priceline-founder Jay Walker’s private library.

    With collaborative support from the staff of Cornell Library and Walker Digital, we planned & executed the first extensive public showing of items from the Walker Library of the History of Human Imagination, featuring such rare artifacts as an original Soviet Sputnik and a dinosaur egg clutch.

    In conjunction with the exhibit, we created a mobile enhanced website that allowed for an interactive experience with the materials. We also coordinated a number of satellite exhibits on the Cornell campus, as well as at the Tompkins County Public Library.

  • After the “Collecting Imagination” exhibit had opened, I was invited to serve as assistant curator for the Department’s subsequent exhibit on children’s literature. Working closely with curator Eisha Neely, we selected and organized materials for a special show that explored the often taboo themes that run through texts written and marketed for children.

    An online version of the exhibit can be viewed here: Wardrobes and Rabbit Holes: A Dark History of Children’s Literature.

On 23, Feb 2013 | In Work-For-Hire Projects

Shortly after completing my coursework at Cornell University, I was contacted by the Art Department about a project to research and catalog the late regionalist painter Alison Mason Kingsbury’s work. Hired by the artist’s daughter Alison Jolly, I undertook the task, which involved traveling to Lewes, England, and Philadelphia, as well as multiple local repositories, to document her artwork.

Murmur Murmur Murmur

On 26, Jan 2013 | In Notes

I do not know how long it can last, but Oakland’s “Murmur” gallery night is magical. Just a hop-skip-jump from our new home, the galleries along Telegraph’s side streets are so packed that you can hardly see the art. Packed!
