Gloria is a program assistant in the Luce Foundation Center where she gives tours, researches artwork, and assists with programming. She loves all American art, especially 20th-Century Craft, and is delighted to have a glimpse of the collection from her desk. When not working and admiring the Craft collection Gloria bakes cakes and pies, reads, and watches romantic foreign movies.
Amelia is a program assistant in the Luce Foundation Center, where she coordinates Luce Unplugged, gives tours, and researches and writes about artwork. She enjoys using social media to share the American Art experience with those who do not get to spend their workday with the museum’s collection. If she is not in the Luce Center, you can find Amelia on her yoga mat, at a concert, or in another museum.
Sara is obsessed with the Internet, and loves the casual conversations and creative sharing that can happen over social media between museum visitors, staff, and art-lovers around the globe. When not buried under a pile of computers and mobile devices in the Media and Technology Office at the museum, she enjoys exloring Washington, D.C. by bike.
Christopher has the great fortune to work on the fourth floor of the American Art Museum in the Lunder Conservation Center. As the Program Coordinator for the center, Chris organizes special programs for the general public, scholarly groups, and museum colleagues in an effort to bolster and convey the work that is done by the museum’s conservators. Chris also gets to work with specialists from other museums and institutions to address and promote topics of interest to conservation groups around the world. When not at the museum, Chris purports to enjoy constructing historical dioramas and collecting stamps.
