Your Biography

Vivian Kung Haga, Deputy Director at the Balboa Park Online Collaborative, has experience in cultural institutions as an administrator, curator, and educator. Before joining the Balboa Park Online Collaborative, she was at the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego for over nine years, first as their Director of Education and then as their Deputy Director. She oversaw the daily operations of the museum, as well as Information Technology, Operations, Facilities, Accounting, Human Resources, Visitor Relations, the Museum Store, and Marketing. She also led the Museum in cutting-edge technology, accessibility, and visitor experience initiatives including a collaboration with the University of California, San Diego, and the National Institution of Information and Communication Technology in Japan. This three-way collaboration led to the creation of an innovative touch table interface built on an open source framework that allows visitors to become curators.

Prior to her tenure at the Museum of Photographic Arts, she was a consulting Curator for ArtReach International, a traveling exhibition company, and for The Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, Tennessee. She was also the Assistant Curator at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens where she curated exhibitions, produced traveling exhibitions, and assisted in the publication of several catalogs. She held positions at Cleveland Museum of Art, where she was part of the team that created the Cleveland Museum of Art’s first audio tour of over 300 messages. She also has experience in the private gallery field. Her first museum position was as an intern at the San Diego Museum of Art. She has a MA in the History of Art from Ohio State University and a BA in Art History from the University of California, San Diego.
