The Whitney Museum of American Art is pleased to announce that Marcela Guerrero (Ph.D. Art History, 2015) has been appointed as assistant curators.
"It is a great honor to join the curatorial staff of a museum that has historically sought to redefine and celebrate the ever-evolving concept of American art and support its dynamism,” said Guerrero. “I’m especially interested in exploring the contributions and impact of Latinx artists in the United States. The possibilities enabled by such a forward-thinking museum are truly energizing.”
