FORT WORTH, TX.- The Amon Carter Museum of American Art announces the appointment of Amanda Blake as Director of Education and Library Services. Blake comes to the Amon Carter from the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), where she served for 11 years, most recently as the Interim Director of Education and Head of Family, Access and School Experiences.

Blake will provide the vision, strategic direction and leadership for the development of the Amon Carter’s programs and projects that connect audiences to the museum. She will join the staff at the Amon Carter on January 15.

“Amanda brings more than 13 years of arts education experience with a focus on initiating and creating opportunities that reach various areas of the community,” says Andrew J. Walker, executive director. “She is creative, innovative and passionate about art, and we are delighted to welcome her to the Amon Carter.”

While at the DMA, Blake oversaw a team of 26 educators who served more than 800,000 annual visitors through adult programs; Arts & Letters Live; family, access and school experiences; interpretation; and the Center for Creative Connections. She expanded program opportunities and directed new educational initiatives for community engagement, increasing earned revenue by 90 percent. Her experience also includes education positions at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Nasher Sculpture Center and Wichita Art Museum. Blake has presented at more than 20 regional and national conferences and forums of professional organizations such as American Alliance of Museums and National Art Education Association. She earned her Master of Arts in Art History from the University of North Texas and her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art History and Studio Art from Oklahoma State University.

“I am honored to join the Amon Carter Museum of American Art serving as the Director of Education and Library Services and to work with a dynamic group of museum leaders,” Blake says. “I am thrilled to continue the wonderful educational experiences currently offered by the museum, and I am grateful for the opportunity to expand and develop the museum’s community outreach and programming initiatives. Throughout my career, I have focused on developing and implementing programs and creating accessibility for underserved audiences, and I look forward to helping shape the next chapter for the Amon Carter with a group of talented education and library staff.”
