The Saint Louis Art Museum’s Virtual Summit on Diversity
The upcoming virtual summit hosted by the Saint Louis Art Museum will present lessons and information learned over three decades of offering the Romare Bearden Graduate Museum Fellowship, one of the country’s most robust and oldest museum programs aimed at increasing staff diversity in the museum field. The goal of the summit is to help young professionals develop their careers and to provide resources for other US museums and cultural institutions wishing to establish programs cultivating future leaders from different backgrounds in education, curatorial practice, audience development, and more.
The list of speakers participating in “Advancing Change: The Future of Museum Leadership” is truly impressive. It includes the Barbara B. Taylor Director of the Saint Louis Art Museum Brent R. Benjamin, the program officer in the Arts and Culture program at the Andrew. W. Mellon Foundation Deborah Cullen-Morales, the director and chief curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem Thelma Golden, and the author of numerous publications on the art and culture of the United States Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw.
