Applications are open for the Samuel H. Kress and Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) Foundation Affiliated Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome (AAR). The program is intended to honor exceptional curatorial vision and help curators advance deserving projects in any field or genre. Applications are due by Monday, October 16, 2017 at 12pm ET.
The Fellowship is open to AAMC members in good standing, and is not limited to those pursuing Rome-specific research. The opportunity to study at the American Academy in Rome provides access to not only resources available in Rome itself, but also to those surrounding Rome, such as Florence, Naples, and Milan. The Affiliated Fellowship is a 4-week appointment at the AAR, which includes funding for travel, accommodations and a stipend.
Since its founding, the program has been awarded to distinguished curators to advance the following projects: Dr. Hilliard Todd Goldfarb, Associate Chief Curator and Curator of Old Masters, The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, for Faith, Death and Eternal Life in the Art of Poussin (working title); Judith Mann, Curator, European Art to 1800 at the Saint Louis Art Museum for Painting on Stone, 1520-1800, Andaleeb Badiee Banta, Curator of European and American Art, Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College for Old Master Drawings @ Oberlin: The Italian Drawings; and Jessica Powers, The Gilbert M. Denman, Jr., Curator of Art of the Ancient Mediterranean World, San Antonio Museum of Art for Sacred Landscapes: Visions of Nature and Myth in Ancient Rome.
