The Shelburne Museum has appointed Victoria Sonnergreen, a current PhD candidate at the University of Delaware, as the first-ever curator dedicated to Native American art.
Thomas Dinenberg, the museum’s director, said Snowgreen’s position is “a key part of Shelburne’s goal of becoming a center of gravity for the study and exploration of indigenous art and material culture in the region, broadening audiences, redefining American art, and forging new relationships and greater understanding across cultures.”
Sunnergren, whose title would be Associate Curator of Native American Art, will open her first exhibit at the museum on June 24: “Built from the Earth: Pueblo Pottery from the Anthony and Teresa Perry Collection,” an exhibit of Southwest ceramics “rooted in the land and materials of New Mexico,” the museum said in a statement. “.
Sunnergren will “lead the interpretation and exhibition of the Museum’s significant collection of Native American art in collaboration with an advisory board of Indigenous artists, curators, and community leaders,” the museum said in a statement. Sunergreen said she is looking forward to “amplifying the indigenous voices represented in the group”.
