CSRC Participates in Groundbreaking Mellon Curatorial Program at Five Comprehensive Art Museums

The CSRC and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) have announced a nationwide search for a National Fellowship Coordinator of the Mellon Undergraduate Curatorial Fellowship Program.

The program is structured as a five-year pilot program, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and designed to create a more diverse curatorial field by engaging young scholars of varied backgrounds and perspectives.  All program activities would be supported by the national coordinator and a dedicated program coordinator at each of the participating museums: LACMA; the Art Institute of Chicago; the High Museum, Atlanta; the Nelson-Atkins Museum, Kansas City; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

The qualified candidate will have a minimum of a master’s degree in art history or a closely related field. A collaborative work style, along with excellent writing and public speaking skills and the ability to coordinate various aspects of the Fellowship Program are required. Demonstrated administrative and managerial skills, work experience within a museum environment, as well as the ability to bring a wider range of perspectives into the curatorial ranks at the museum are essential. The position reports to LACMA’s Deputy Director for Art Administration and Collections, who will provide oversight for the program along with Dr. Chon Noriega, the Director of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center.

This project is overseen by CSRC director Chon A. Noriega and LACMA deputy director Nancy Thomas.
