USM Student Selected for Summer Curatorial Academy at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art chose USM sophomore art student Adeline Pagan-Sanchez for the competitive Andrew W. Mellon Undergraduate Curatorial Summer Academy.
The academy is a weeklong immersive experience at the museum—challenging students to learn the ins and outs of curating, while deepening their understanding of art history. Tours, field trips, and projects coordinated by a museum curator also provide experiential learning as well as mentorship.
USM’s Art Program Director Shelby Prindaville said, “I can’t think of a better candidate for the academy. Adeline will represent the program extremely well, and everyone who works with her will come away feeling such job satisfaction and happiness to have been able to teach and work alongside such a receptive scholar with admirable character.”
