Susan is currently continuing work with the curators at SAM as a Research Associate and is also a PhD candidate in the History of Art at the University of Michigan. For two years Susan worked as the Curatorial Associate involved with the Growing Up With Art project at the Seattle Art Museum. She worked with curators and museum educators, and Seattle Public School teachers during this grant period to bring 6th graders from two Seattle Public Middle Schools into the museum to curate their own exhibitions. Susan helped students select objects from SAM's permanent collection, developed lesson plans with museum educators, and traveled with SAM educators to the schools to teach these lessons on how to curate an exhibition. The lessons on the web site are the same lessons that these Seattle students learned in the process of creating their own exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum. It is this experience that the "My Art Gallery" web site attempts to keep alive by bringing it to the web. She continues to bring web design, illustration and organizational skills to the various web projects at the Seattle Art Museum.

Susan will present Bringing the Curatorial Process to the Web
