FORT WORTH, Texas–The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) recently named Stacy Fuller, Amon Carter Museum head of education, as its 2009 Outstanding Museum Division Art Educator. The award will be presented Friday, November 13, at TAEA’s annual conference in Dallas.
The Texas Art Education Association’s mission is to raise the standards of art education throughout the state, to promote art as an integral part of the curriculum and to represent the art educators of Texas.
Fuller joined the Amon Carter Museum in 2004. As head of education, she oversees the museum’s extensive and varied education programs, which include school tours, public programs, educator training and workshops, teaching resource center initiatives and distance learning broadcasts. In addition, she has developed and successfully implemented the museum’s highly regarded Sharing the Past Through Art and Connect to Art accessible programs. This year, she was selected as vice president of the Museum Education Roundtable, a national organization dedicated to furthering museum education.
Fuller has led presentations at annual conferences of the Texas Association of Museums, National Art Education Association, Texas Art Education Association, American Association of Museums, and Leadership Exchange in Arts and Disability, and has lectured at Humanities Texas summer teaching institutes.
“I am incredibly honored to receive this award,” says Fuller. “I feel passionately about sharing the Carter and our education programs and love extending our collection to as many audiences as possible.
“Receiving this award would not be possible without support from the entire museum and board of trustees and the dedicated education team that daily brings art to life for so many visitors.”
