The Kress Interpretive Fellowships at Art Museums program is designed to provide a new kind of mentored professional development opportunity within art museums in the United States. The program is intended to encourage students to explore interpretive careers in art museums, whether as future museum educators or curators; to strengthen the profession of museum educator within the art museum community; to strengthen ties between museum educators and curators in the shared task of interpretive programming in art museums; and to expand the range of promising career options available to students of art history and related fields.
The Foundation has recently awarded Interpretive Fellowships for the 2022 / 2023 year to the following art museums:
American Friends of Capodimonte
Memphis Brooks Museum of Art
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Toledo Museum of Art
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Individuals interested in exploring these fellowship opportunities are encouraged to consult the websites of the host museums for calls for applications. Please note that in some instances fellows might already have been identified.
