The Fralin Museum of Art announces the appointment of new Curator of the Indigenous Arts of the Americas
Dr. Greci Green is an art historian, curator and anthropologist, whose expertise in Native American art histories holds an emphasis on the Plains and Great Lakes regions.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA.- The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia is pleased to announce the new appointment of Adriana Greci Green, PhD, as Curator of the Indigenous Arts of the Americas.

Dr. Greci Green is an art historian, curator and anthropologist, whose expertise in Native American art histories holds an emphasis on the Plains and Great Lakes regions. Her research focuses on 18-20th-century American Indian histories, exploring the contexts in which material culture, art, dress, and cultural performance are produced and circulated, both historically and today. She also looks at how Native Americans have been represented in museums, popular culture, and the media. Dr. Greci Green earned her doctoral degree from Rutgers University. Her interests in sociocultural anthropology include representations of identity, the economic significance of women’s work, indigenous aesthetic systems and material culture studies. Most recently, Dr. Greci Green has served as Lead Curator of the Arts of the Americas Reinstallation Project at the Newark Museum and is a Research Collaborator in the Department of Anthropology at the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution.

Her research on Ojibwa and Odawa quillwork artists and basket makers has appeared in the volume Tribal Worlds: Critical Studies in American Indian Nation Building (State University of New York Press, 2013), in American Indian Art Magazine (2012), as well as in the catalogue of the exhibition she organized for the Central Michigan University Art Museum, Twentieth Century Anishinabe Art: The Olga Denison Collection (2006). Her writings on Plains art, material culture and dress include contributions to the catalogue of the acclaimed exhibition The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky (Museé du Quai Branly/Skira Rizzoli, 2014), and to The Berg Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion (Berg Publishers/Oxford International Publishers Ltd., 2010).

This new position is part of a major collaboration between The Fralin Museum of Art, the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, and the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. As Curator of the Indigenous Arts of the Americas, Dr. Greci Green will oversee a growing collection of more than 700 objects of Native American art and 2,000 objects of Pre-Columbian art of varying origin and media. She will develop this area through documentation, research, preservation, presentation and acquisition, developing original exhibitions and programming around this area, in order to make the collection more accessible and visible to the Museum’s diverse audiences. Using the collection, she will teach classes through the McIntire Department of Art at the University of Virginia.

“We are delighted to welcome Adriana to our Museum’s staff. During the search process, we were quite impressed by her extensive work with indigenous artists and their communities. Her strengths in teaching and research will continue to distinguish the University of Virginia’s art museum as a center of excellence for the study of the art of the Americas,” said M. Jordan Love, Academic Curator and Co-Interim Director of UVA’s Fralin Museum of Art.

Dr. Greci Green begins her new post on September 12, 2016.
