Naiomy Guerrero '12 Awarded Fellowship from Pérez Art Museum Miami

February 14, 2018

Naiomy Guerrero, a 2012 graduate of DePauw University, is the recipient of the Pérez Art Museum Miami's (PAMM) inaugural Diversifying Art Museum Leadership Initiative (DAMLI) Curatorial Fellowship.

"This two-year fellowship, made possible by the Walton Family Foundation and the Ford Foundation, is offered to students from historically underrepresented groups in the curatorial and museum profession who have recently completed graduate level studies in art history or a related field," notes an announcement. "The fellow will have the opportunity to work on at least two major projects at PAMM and will generate at least four written pieces for the curatorial and education departments. The fellow will also work to initiate at least two new community partnerships in pursuit of deeper community engagement in exhibitions, programs, and/or collections."

"We’re happy to welcome Naiomy to the PAMMily as the new DAMLI Curatorial Fellow," said the museum's director, Franklin Sirmans. "Her background and experience in public programming, exhibition installation, public speaking, and more, will be valuable assets to this institution and help us to achieve our mission and vision to create a platform for diverse voices that is reflective of Miami’s multicultural community. We are grateful for the extraordinary support of the Walton Family and Ford Foundations and thankful to be playing a role in the diversification of the field."

A Posse Scholar, Guerrero majored in art history at DePauw with a double minor in studio art and history. She has begun graduate research and coursework towards a master’s in social thought.
