Upcoming Event – Museum Careers: Pathways to Success with an M.A. Degree

On Friday, November 6 from 6:00 – 8:00PM, the AU Art History Program will be hosting a panel discussion with four Art History alumni/ae. Our guest alumni/ae will discuss how they found and gained their positions, how they built their skills and moved up from entry level jobs, and what they like best and found most challenging in the process.

Speakers will include:

Susan Breitkopf, Director of Corporate, Foundation, and Association Relations, National Building Museum (1998)

Paul Ruther, Director of Docent Education, Sackler-Freer Gallery (1998)

Olivia Kohler-Maga, Assistant Director, Luther W. Brady Gallery, GWU (2006)

Elizabeth Willson Christopher, Rights and Reproductions Coordinator, Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution (2012)

The panel discussion will be followed by a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception that will give AU Art History alums and current M.A. students the chance to connect and network. Please R.S. V. P. to Professor Helen Langa at hlanga@american.edu
