Ongoing professional development provided by our experienced education and curatorial staff ensures that Education Fellows leave the program with extensive experience teaching and programming for a variety of audiences, and with a completed professional teaching portfolio.

Program alumni have pursued careers at such cultural institutions as the Denver Art Museum; the Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; the National Museum of the American Indian; the New Museum; and the Queens Museum of Art, as well as the New York City Department of Education and the School District of Philadelphia.
