Congratulations to MCHS alumna Annie Booth, who just months after graduating with her MA accepted the position of Coordinator of Museum Education at the FSU Museum of Fine Arts.
In the spring of 2019, Annie received her MA in Museum and Cultural Heritage Studies and a certificate in Museum Education and Visitor-Centered Curation. During her time in the Art History graduate program, she co-curated four collaborative exhibitions: Power in the Panhandle: Photographing the Aftermath of Hurricane Michael in Marianna and Panama City, Florida, #IAmACurator, 68:18 Student Protest in Print, and Love Dolly: Letters Home in World War II. Annie’s research paper, “Visual Sovereignty Talks Back: Artistic Intervention into the Epidemic of Violence against Indigenous Women and Girls,” was the winner of the 2019 Winbury Award; she will present that paper at the Native American Art Studies Association conference in Minneapolis in October, 2019.
Annie looks forward to drawing upon her background in art history and environmental science in her new position as she works closely with FSU students, faculty, organizations, and the greater Tallahassee community to advance MoFA’s mission. Make sure to stop by the Museum to check out her educational programming for the fall exhibitions Identity in the Ottoman Empire and Combined Talents.
