2013 Future Curators
The 2013 Future Curators team is made up of fourteen students in grades eleven and twelve: Kendall Appelbaum (Nichols School), Claire Augello (Lewiston-Porter High School), Paloma D’Auria (Nichols School), Joshua Fraass (St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute), Katiana Hernandez (Williamsville East High School), Whitney Kehl (Attica Senior High School), Saraphina Masters (Tapestry Charter School), Stephen Matthew (St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute), Megan McCuen (Frontier Central High School), Morgan McCutcheon (West Seneca West Senior High School), Brodie McPherson (Lewiston-Porter High School), Alexa Nicoletti (Lewiston-Porter High School), Maria Root (PS 195 City Honors School), and Charlotte Saunders (Sweet Home High School).
This dynamic team of young artists, art historians, actors, writers, cooks, and entrepreneurs was selected from a large pool of applicants and began the program in January 2013. They used the Gallery’s Collection to explore new ways of looking at art and learned what goes on behind-the-scenes at the museum from various staff members.
The 2013 Future Curators' exhibition of artwork by local high school students—In: Introspection, Interaction—was on view from Friday, May 3, through Sunday, June 16, 2013. An exhibition opening celebration planned by the team took place on Thursday, May 2, from 5 to 9 pm.
