FORT WORTH, Texas (October 7, 2009)–The Amon Carter Museum is pleased to announce that Brady Nichols Sloane has joined its staff in the newly created position of Public Programs Manager.
Sloane is responsible for developing and implementing a broad range of programs and resources designed to assist visitors of all ages and abilities, including adults, children and families, in experiencing and understanding the Carter’s collections and special exhibitions.
“The Carter’s new position of Public Programs Manager will allow us to continue popular existing programs and further expand initiatives that connect a variety of audiences to our outstanding collection of American art,” says Stacy Fuller, head of education. “I am eager to see the Carter’s public programs grow under Brady’s leadership and creativity and look forward to our exciting lineup of upcoming programs.”
Previous to the Carter, Sloane was curator of exhibits at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene, Texas. While there, she conceptualized and implemented more than 25 in-house rotating exhibitions a year including six national and international photography exhibits. Sloane developed various programs to coincide with special exhibitions, including a partnership with the Alliance for Women and Children (formerly the YMCA). Sloane served as coordinator for Abilene’s ArtWalk (a downtown monthly celebration of the arts) for more than a year, and taught art outreach programs and summer art camps. She has also worked as an independent curator for several art organizations including the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature and the 2009 Texas Association of Schools of Art annual competition. Sloane will receive her master’s degree in museum studies from the University of Oklahoma in December 2009. She has a bachelor of fine arts degree from McMurry University in Abilene.
“I am thrilled to join the Amon Carter Museum as Public Programs Manager,” Sloane says. “I look forward to continuing the success of current programming, in addition to implementing new programs and serving the needs of the Fort Worth community.”
