Oklahoma City Museum of Art receives grant from Samuel H. Kress Foundation
Schockmel will research a series of objects from the Museum’s permanent collection to establish a more complete record of their provenance.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA.- OKCMOA has been awarded a grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to support a one-year provenance research fellowship, becoming the first institution in Oklahoma to receive this grant. Beginning Sept. 9, 2019, OKCMOA will welcome Dr. Bryn Critz Schockmel, a 2019 Ph.D. graduate of Boston University’s History of Art & Architecture program as a new fellow. Schockmel will research a series of objects from the Museum’s permanent collection to establish a more complete record of their provenance.

“The museum will celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2020,” said Dr. Michael Anderson, OKCMOA interim president and CEO. “For this major anniversary, the Museum is undertaking a yearlong focus on our permanent collection, our institutional history and our vision for future. We are thrilled to be selected for this competitive fellowship during this important year for our institution. We look forward to seeing the in-depth research Dr. Schockmel will complete on our collection this year and to helping her grow in her career as a provenance researcher.”

Kress Fellowships provide mentored professional development opportunities for promising candidates in the art history field. The Samuel H. Kress Foundation Provenance Research Fellowship provides essential funding for a researcher to investigate a permanent collection, or part of a collection, of an Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) museum. The funding makes it possible for the museum to take a more comprehensive approach to conducting in-depth research and delving into the full provenance, ownership and exhibition histories of works from the collection.

Schockmel comes to OKCMOA with an impressive background, including an Italian Renaissance concentration, knowledge of French, German and Italian and experience in the acclaimed Mapping Titian project. She received her B.A. in Art History from Skidmore College, M.A. in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London and Ph.D. in History of Art & Architecture from Boston University. She will be mentored by Nancy E. Edwards, curator of European art at the Kimbell Art Museum. Schockmel will work closely with OKCMOA staff to present her findings on a new section of the website next year.
