Vero Beach Museum announces new curator
Dr. Johnson is currently teaching in New York University’s Department of Art History.

VERO BEACH, FLA.- After conducting a national search, the Vero Beach Museum of Art announced that Danielle Johnson has been appointed Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art effective July 10, 2017. Dr. Johnson is currently teaching in New York University’s Department of Art History.

From 2011-2015 she was Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. At MoMA, she worked on the landmark exhibition, Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938. Anne Umland, The Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA, stated, “Danielle Johnson was a stellar partner on MoMA's 2013 Magritte exhibition; her in-depth expertise, energy and enthusiasm made the project the best it could possibly be.”

Johnson holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in the History of Art from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. Her dissertation, Salvador Dalí and René Magritte, 1928-1938, was supported by grants from New York University, the Getty Research Institute, and the Belgian American Educational Foundation. She earned a B.A. in the History of Art and French Language and Literature from Colgate University.

“Danielle brings a wealth of concepts for major traveling exhibitions and publications that will help propel the Vero Beach Museum of Art to the next level,” stated Vero Beach’s Executive Director and CEO, Brady Roberts. Johnson joins the institution at an opportune moment. The Museum has just completed a successful campaign bringing the endowment to $30 million. The Museum’s endowment has tripled in the past seven years. In 2012 the Museum completed a major capital campaign providing state of the art storage and receiving spaces along with added gallery space. The growth in facilities and endowment pave the way for more ambitious programming.

Johnson has also held teaching positions at the CUNY Graduate Center and Hunter College. She completed research for the Saint Louis Museum of Art on their publication Max Beckman at the St. Louis Museum of Art: The Paintings (2015) and was a consultant for MoMA on the exhibition Dali: Painting and Film (2008).
