UMFA SELECTS MUSEUM EDUCATOR FOR PRESTIGIOUS KRESS FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIP
Emily Izzo Headshot
The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to announce that Emily Izzo has been named the museum’s 2015-16 Kress Interpretive Fellow. The museum was recently awarded a major $30,000 grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to fund the one-year position.

Izzo is currently an audience engagement specialist at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and has an M.A. in museum studies from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. She will begin work this fall with the UMFA’s education and curatorial departments, working primarily to develop new ways for visitors to deepen their understanding of the museum’s European art collection.

The Kress Interpretive Fellowship program provides competitive grants to American art museums to sponsor mentored internships for either future museum educators or curators. The program is meant to encourage exploration of interpretive careers in art museums, strengthen the profession of museum education as well as ties between educators and curators and expand the range of career options for students of art history and related fields.
