Dana and Toni Ann Rust Curatorial Fellowship
The Dana and Toni Ann Rust Curatorial Fellowship provides a curatorial opportunity for two curators or graduate or post-graduate students to work together. Proposals are meant to concentrate on themes/projects in relation to the museum’s Permanent Collection or to provide local community involvement.
MoNA will accept exhibition/project proposals for review by March 1, 2017. The Fellows will be selected in mid March. The selected team’s exhibition/project will be scheduled to run for three months in 2018 in the second floor galleries. Each fellow will receive a stipend of $2,000 to help fund research and complete the exhibition/project. A digital catalogue of the exhibition may be developed with the assistance of the Fellows. Fellows will be expected to work with the museum’s curatorial staff on installation and de-installation of the exhibition.
