MA Alumna Joins the Guggenheim
Amy Boyle, MA in Art + Design Education, 2012 recently joined the Guggenheim Museum’s Learning Through Art program. In her capacity as Education Associate, she will oversee selected Teaching Artists and conduct observations at residency sites while helping to develop curriculum. She will also assist in professional development opportunities for Teaching Artists and volunteers and teach in the galleries. Prior to her work at the Guggenheim, Amy served as the Education Manager for The Noguchi Museum where she managed programs for a wide range of audiences. In addition to working with teens, adults, and K-12 students in various capacities on and off site of the Museum, she helped develop and facilitate the Teacher Think Tank program which brought classroom teachers and museum educators together to collaboratively explore topics related to school and museum education. Her RISD MA thesis, “Towards A Visitor-Centered Future: The Comprehensive Interpretative Plan and the Art Museum”, explored how museums are redefining their approach to interpreting and displaying their collections on an institution-wide level.
