Sierra Van Ryck DeGroot Education Assistant The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Sierra's exposure to the arts began in the womb with the carefully selected playlists of her parents hoping to awaken the creative nature of their child. Since then, she has aspired to be a vet, biomedical illustrator, astronaut, and graphic designer before finding her "just right" match in museum education. 

A proud alumna of Seton Hall University (B.A in Graphic Design, Fine Art and Art History) and Bank Street College of Education (M.S.Ed in Museum Education with a specialization in Childhood Education), Sierra explores the intersections of art, design, history, and play in her work as the Education Assistant at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. You can often find her covered in glue and some form of marker, paint or glitter, surrounded by children or in a gallery, in the midst of a tableau. 

She is the current Secretary and Peer Group Liaison for the NYCMER Board.

When:4:15 pm - 5:00 pm

Workshop Organizer: Museums and International Understanding Peer Group

RSVP: Rebecca Armstrong- rebeccalynnearmstrong@gmail.com

 

Focus: We will be focusing on applying what we discussed at November’s meeting to our site visit to the Ukrainian Museum- what does “international understanding” mean for museums specifically, what is necessary to promote these goals within the museum’s programs and exhibitions, and does the museum meet these goals/how so. There are a few beautiful exhibitions currently up that will help spark our discussions!
