FORT WORTH, Texas—The Amon Carter Museum of American Art is pleased to announce that Jessica Kennedy has joined its nationally recognized Education Department in the position of Public Programs Manager.
From adult programs such as gallery talks and Crafting from the Collection to family friendly events such as Family Fun Day and New Parents Tours, the Amon Carter’s diverse public programs reach more than 14,000 members of the community each year. Kennedy will implement a broad range of programming for visitors of all ages to experience the Amon Carter’s collection and special exhibitions.
“The Amon Carter has a long tradition of providing free, engaging public programs for adults and families to connect to our collection of American art,” says Stacy Fuller, director of education. “Jessica will build on this foundation, keeping participants’ favorite programs and designing new ones to attract those who may not be frequent visitors to the museum.”
Kennedy holds a master’s degree in history with a concentration in museum studies and a bachelor’s degree in art history from the University of Missouri—St. Louis. She has five years experience in museum education and interpretation, previously working at the Dallas Museum of Art and the Saint Louis Art Museum.
