The Museum continues its partnership with UAB this academic year with the appointment of Kelsey Tae Frady as the second BMA/UAB Curatorial Fellow. Kelsey is a second-year graduate student in the Department of Art History at UAB with an emphasis on American art of the 19th and 20th centuries and a particular focus on issues of race, class, and gender.
Kelsey will work closely with the Museum’s curatorial staff to learn about the inner workings of a museum and help prepare her for a future career as a museum curator. Her projects will be varied and will support the curators’ work on the permanent collection and special exhibitions. Kelsey will be with the Museum until August 2012.
