The Art Institute of Chicago, the High Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art are pleased to announce the second class of fellows designated for The Andrew W. Mellon Undergraduate Curatorial Fellowship Program. In total, 11 students were selected for the 2015-2017 program.
The fellowship provides specialized training in the curatorial field to students across the United States who are in underrepresented groups in the curatorial field and support the goal of promoting diverse museums.
The two-year fellowship will provide students with hands-on experience inside a museum setting, assisting curators and staff with exhibitions, collections and programs. Fellows will be matched with a museum curatorial mentor who will work to enrich the academic experience and to increase exposure to the museum. Fellowships include engagement during the academic school year followed by summer internships. “It is a pleasure to see the Mellon Undergraduate Curatorial Fellowship program take root at LACMA and at our peer institutions around the country,” Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director said. “With each group of fellows, new voices and new perspectives are emerging in the museum field. We will feel the effects of this program for years to come.”
