Yale Art Gallery has announced the appointment of Liliana Milkova as the Nolen Curator of Education and Academic Affairs. She will begin in January 2019.
“The Gallery’s educational mission is at the heart of what we do, and we strive to be a dynamic and generative leader within the college and university art museum community,” explains Stephanie Wiles, the Henry J. Heinz II Director. “I had the pleasure of working with Liliana for several years when I was the director of the Allen Memorial Art Museum. She is an impressive thinker and outstanding colleague who made the museum a central focus of learning and engagement at Oberlin over the past decade. Liliana is well suited to the Nolen Curator role given her demonstrated passion for campus and community outreach and her expertise with interdisciplinary collaborations. Yale University is a place where exciting intersections in research, scholarship, and discovery happen every day, and I am confident that Liliana will bring a new vitality to the museum by capitalizing on these opportunities in relation to the Gallery’s marvelous holdings and resources.” (Art Daily)
