AH Major Kacie Martinez accepted into the Summer 2019 Mellon Curatorial Program at the Art Institute of Chicago


The Andrew W. Mellon Undergraduate Summer Academy and Curatorial Fellowship Program is an initiative that aims to make a critical impact on arts leadership across the nation. The Summer Academy is a one-week (June 23-30, 2019) intensive program exposing undergraduate students to museum professions through workshops, behind-the-scenes art museum tours, field trips and networking events with art collectors, curators and museum staff. After completing the Summer Academy, participants will submit supplemental materials to be considered for a fellowship.

The Curatorial Fellowship is for undergraduate students that can commit two-years in the program prior to graduating. Fellows gain hands-on experience working with curators and staff on exhibitions, collections, and programs. In addition, fellows are provided a stipend, assigned museum mentors during their academic year and receive museum internships for two consecutive summers.
