Marist Alumna Speaks on Careers in Museum Studies

Julianna White Event

Julianna White ’11, editor at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., gave a talk at Marist College entitled My Path to the Smithsonian. The talk was a multimedia presentation held Wednesday, May 2, in the Henry Hudson Room in Fontaine Hall.

White spoke to a select group of students and faculty invited by Dr. Martin Shaffer, Dean of the School of Liberal Arts. She outlined her career path that began with an internship she completed as part of her undergraduate degree in Art History at Marist. After earning her Master of Arts in Art History at the NYU Institute of Fine Arts, White conducted research at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. In more than two years at the Yale University Art Gallery, White was an editorial assistant and got promoted to senior editorial assistant. White has worked in her current role at the Smithsonian since October 2016.

Later in the day White gave the keynote address at the 28th Annual Field Experience Recognition Award Ceremony at the Cornell Boathouse. Both events featuring White were sponsored by the School of Liberal Arts and the Center for Career Services at Marist College.
