The Morris Announces Appointment of New Curator of Education

AUGUSTA, GA.- The Morris Museum of Art staff announce that Michelle Schulte has accepted the position as the Curator of Education. Schulte, the former associate curator of education at the Morris, is assuming the duties of David Tucker who retires on Wednesday, December 15, 2010.

“All of us at the Morris Museum are saddened by the departure of David Tucker,” said Kevin Grogan, Director of the Morris Museum of Art, “but we feel completely confident that Michelle Schulte is the ideal person to fill his shoes. Her academic credentials and prior experience—she has been a classroom teacher and has worked in the education department at the Telfair Museum, for a time as its interim curator—and her complete familiarity with this museum, its collections, personnel, and volunteers really set her apart from the other applicants.”

Schulte holds degrees in photography and art education from Armstrong Atlantic State University and the Savannah College of Art and Design, as well as a master’s degree in museum studies from Johns Hopkins University. She has been with the Morris for the past three years, overseeing the museum’s public programs—she was instrumental in creating and refurbishing the Morris’s Education Gallery, revamping programs such as the Morris Arts Council and Artrageous Family Sunday!, rewriting museum curriculum for kindergarten through twelfth-grade students, and developing partnerships with the Medical College of Georgia and Augusta State University, where she is now an adjunct faculty member.

The Morris Museum of Art was founded in 1985 and opened to the public in 1992. It is the oldest museum in the country that is devoted to the art and artists of the American South. The museum’s permanent collection of nearly five thousand works of art spans more than two hundred years, from the late-eighteenth century to the present.
