Guests will meet me at the Susquehanna Art Museum for a guided tour of the exhibitions on view. As we explore the exhibitions we will discuss biographical information about the artists, the processes/materials they utilize, and art historical context for their work. I will also share some of the ins and outs of the process of designing, curating, and installing an exhibition for an art museum. This tour is flexible based on your level of experience, from art novice to art lover! I prefer to give tours to small groups and keep it conversational. That means answering your questions along the way and lingering at pieces that grab your attention. If you are curious about what the current exhibitions are before booking, feel free to contact me for more information. I'd be happy to share what's on view. I have been working at the Susquehanna Art Museum since we opened this new Midtown location in January 2015, and I have lived here in Midtown for 9 years. I can point you in the right direction for other Harrisburg arts and culture locations for your visit, as well as recommend some of the best restaurants and experiences the area has to offer.
Your tour will include standard museum admission.
I am the Director of Exhibitions at the Susquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg, PA. Prior, I served as Art Program Director & Gallery Manager at art galleries in Lancaster, PA. My formal education is in art history & sculpture, with special experience in bronze foundry metalworking. I have curated exhibitions at a variety of venues for nine years & assisted in sculpture installations both nationally & internationally. I have served as a juror/judge for exhibitions at arts organizations such as the York Art Assn., Berks Art Council, Whitaker Center, Creative York, Carlisle Arts Learning Center, & Millersville University where I was honored to be the first alumni juror in exhibition history. My interest in public art sparked the SAM mural project, and I coordinated the installation of an ambitious outdoor mural in Midtown, Harrisburg.
We will visit the Susquehanna Art Museum in Midtown Harrisburg. SAM is Harrisburg's only dedicated art museum. We are located at 1401 North 3rd Street in Harrisburg. There is free parking available in the lot directly behind the museum. *Please note that my schedule has some flexibility! Feel free to contact me directly if you have a date/time in mind that is not on my calendar.*
