Chazen Museum of Art Distinguished Curator Andrew Stevens to retire
Andrew Stevens, Distinguished Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, will retire after 30 years of service to the University at the Chazen Museum of Art.

MADISON, WI.- The Chazen Museum of Art announced that Distinguished Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs Andrew Stevens will retire October 5, 2018. During his thirty years of service to the Museum and the University, Stevens introduced thousands of students and other visitors to the museum’s print collection, where they could examine art in detail.

“This has been a great gig for me,” said Stevens. “Being allowed to explore the collection and report back what I’ve found (in the form of exhibitions and class discussions) has been a signal honor; having made a living doing so places me in a vanishingly small proportion of people whose work and pleasure coincide.”

Watanabe: Japanese Print Envoy will be Stevens's final exhibition as a staff member. He will present a public lecture Thursday, July 12 at 5:30 p.m. in the Chazen Auditorium.

“We are grateful for Drew’s many years of thoughtful service to the museum,” said Chazen Director Amy Gilman. “During his time here, he doubled the size of the works on paper collection and planned more than 90 exhibitions introducing many aspects of the collection (and loaned material) to the community. He is a deeply respected curator within the field and will be sorely missed by staff, docents, and museum visitors.”

Stevens earned a BA and an MA in English from Iowa State University. He earned an MA in art history in 1988 from the University of Kansas and began work at the Chazen that same year. In 2016 Stevens earned the University’s “distinguished” title, an honor granted to academic staff in recognition of extensive experience and advanced knowledge and skills.

Said Stevens of his post-retirement plans, “I will miss working with my wonderful colleagues here at the museum and the amazing freedom to cruise into the print room and pull out whatever I want to look at. However, I have things to make and pictures to take. I’ll do some writing as well.”
