Albany, New York Area
Hello, everyone! My name is Brieanna, and I'm new to ARLIS! I received my A.S. in Gallery Management from SUNY Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY. Afterwards, I attended and received my B.A. in Art History from SUNY University at Albany, where I double majored in Art History and Studio Art with a Spanish minor. I will soon be graduating this spring with my MLIS and hope to find myself in a professional position before planning to go for my second master's by the fall of 2019.

I'm aspiring to become an art museum librarian/ museum professional at some point in the very near future, hoping to specialize in 19th, 20th and 21st century African and African American Art & Art History, with very special research foci covering on the Black Arts Movements, social justice issues surrounding and affecting present day art communities, protest art by modern and contemporary black artists (photography, drawing, painting and illustration) and how their visionary, artistic talents can help to bring attention about the much needed change within the social justice system affecting the African American community and people of color here in America, as well as how museum themselves can step in and act as a vehicle of change to bring attention and awareness of such issues to light beyond their geographical limits, on more than a local and regional level.

My ideal program of choice will be one that has a dual-degree option, which would allow me to strengthen my research skills and sharpen my focus on my specified research interests within art history, while at the same time allowing me to learn much more about museum practice and theory, relevant to my specific interests in museology (collections care management, registrar, curatorial, conservation/preservation, outreach, development/grant writing, etc.).

I would love to meet and network with other fellow art library/ MLIS students, recent graduates and other like-minded early-career professionals and talk about what scholastic and other unique opportunities, such as fellowships, are available out there to apply and to take advantage advantage of, in addition to any other professional membership organizations to be a part of and any special advice to be shared amongst one another.

I'm very excited to be a part of the rich, colorful and vibrant ARLIS community with like-minded professionals and I look forward to meeting everyone at the ARLIS conference in New York!
