European collection and will build a strong capacity to utilize technology
to implement his/her research and broaden access to the collection.

museum education and must be either pursuing graduate study or have

Director of Education and Public Programs, the Fellow will work closely
with the Curator of European Art, Associate Director of Education and
Public Programs, and the Interpretive Media Specialist to support targeted
research efforts with the European collection and develop a series of
interpretive resources and learning experiences designed to generate
meaningful, sustained public engagement around this collection area.
