Fales Promoted to Associate Director and Named Interim Executive Director for Boise Art Museum
Melanie Fales

BOISE, ID.- Melanie Fales, Curator of Education for the Boise Art Museum (BAM), has been promoted to Associate Director and named Interim Executive Director for BAM, Amy McDevitt, president of the Museum’s Board of Trustees, announced today.

“Melanie’s promotion to Associate Director is well deserved,” said McDevitt. “During her 12 years at the Boise Art Museum, she has emerged as a leader who has the respect of her colleagues and the trustees. She is a natural choice to lead the museum as we decide the direction and process we will take in naming a permanent executive director.”

Fales, who began her career at BAM in 1996 as an art educator, was named Associate Curator of Education in 2000 and Curator of Education in 2002. Under her leadership, the educational programs and partnerships of the museum have expanded to reach new and underserved audiences from toddlers, teens and seniors to students and teachers in rural classrooms and the growing Hispanic community. Fales served as BAM’s Interim Executive Director and Curator of Education for 14 months from 2006-2007, working in collaboration with staff, board and the community to make improvements in all areas of the museum including leading the process for successful national re-accreditation.

Fales graduated cum laude from Boise State University with a degree in art emphasizing painting and art history. As the recipient of a Rotary International Ambassadorial Graduate Scholarship, she studied art history and museum studies at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris. In 1996 she graduated summa cum laude from Boise State University with a Master of Arts degree focusing on museum education.

Fales serves as an officer on the board of the Western Museums Association and was instrumental in the development of the Cultural Network, a consortium of cultural institutions in the community. She also serves as an adjunct faculty member for both Boise State University and the University of Idaho.
