Zoe Donnell, curatorial coordinator at Tacoma Art Museum, has been chosen to take part in a curator exchange program next month sponsored by the Japan Foundation. One of 10 young American curators in the program, Donnell represents the only midsize regional museum involved, among others such as Seattle Art Museum and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The program offers 12 days of travel throughout Japan, visiting a range of museums and meeting with local curators.
“We are thrilled that Zoe has this opportunity to meet colleagues from around the United States and to forge new connections with museums and curators in Japan,” said Margaret Bullock, curator of collections and special exhibitions. “We look forward to some exciting future collaborations thanks to her experiences with this program.”
Donnell was the curator for “Edo to Tacoma: Japanese Woodblock Prints from the Collection,” which just closed at the museum, and features historic Japanese prints.
