Shelburne Museum establishes Curator of Native American Art

SHELBURNE, VT.- Shelburne Museum has established a new curatorship in Native American Art and appointed the first curator to hold the position, announced Thomas Denenberg, John Wilmerding Director of Shelburne Museum.

Victoria Sunnergren is the museum’s first Associate Curator of Native American Art, a post funded by the Henry Luce Foundation. In her new position, Sunnergren will lead the interpretation and exhibition of the museum’s collection of Indigenous art and material culture and organize an exhibition highlighting The Perry Collection of Native American masterworks. Sunnergren will guide the museum’s program in collaboration with an advisory board of Indigenous artists, curators, and community leaders.

“This curatorship is an essential part of Shelburne’s goal to become a center of gravity for the study and exploration of Indigenous art and material culture in the region, broadening audiences, redefining American Art, and cultivating new relationships and greater understanding across cultures,” Denenberg said.

Sunnergren’s first project, this summer’s exhibition Built from the Earth: Pueblo Pottery from the Anthony and Teressa Perry Collection, highlights important items from the Perry collection. The exhibition focuses on the skill and artistry of potters from eight of the Pueblo communities in New Mexico: Acoma, Cochiti, Laguna, Santa Ana, Santo Domingo, San Ildefonso, Zia, and Zuni. Built from the Earth will introduce visitors to the techniques of creating these works of art, discussing the historic methods rooted in the land and materials of New Mexico. The exhibition is on view in the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education, Murphy Gallery, June 24 through October 22, 2023.

“I am delighted to join Shelburne as the first Associate Curator of Native American Art. I look forward to my role in bringing Indigenous art and material culture to Shelburne’s audiences and amplifying the Indigenous voices represented in the collection,” Sunnergren said.

Sunnergren earned her master’s degree from the University of Delaware. Her bachelor’s degree is from Florida State University. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate and Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the University of Delaware.
