A Conversation with Jenenne Whitfield, Director of the American Visionary Art Museum
This September, the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) welcomes only its second director in its 30+-year history with the appointment of Jenenne Whitfield by the Board of Directors to succeed Founder, Director and Primary Curator Rebecca Alban Hoffberger. Ms. Whitfield was previously the President & CEO of The Heidelberg Project and worked with the Detroit-based outdoor artistic organization for 28 years. She also lectures regularly, has taught courses at Wayne State University and the University of Michigan on art as a social practice, and serves as a mentor to the next generation of art thinkers and activists. She is co-founder of a new art collective in Detroit called United Artists of Detroit (UAD).
Join the Arts Funders Affinity Group for a conversation with Ms. Whitfield to learn about her vision for AVAM, the current state of the museum, and other pertinent issues. Funders of arts and culture will have the opportunity to build relationships with one another and share their interests as well.
This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members only.
Participants are encouraged to join in person but virtual participation is available as well.
