In keeping with its mission as a teaching museum, the Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) have developed a new education-focused staff position, and a Lehigh graduate will be filling that role. 

Stacie E. Brennan ’03 returns to the Lehigh community on Sept. 3 as the inaugural curator of education. In her new role, Brennan will oversee all educational programming and the visitor experience for a wide range of audiences, including Lehigh students and faculty, PK-12 schools and educators, and families.  Most recently, Brennan was the senior director of visual arts for ArtsQuest, where she lead programs with contemporary artists, including several public art projects in Bethlehem.

“We are thrilled to have Stacie’s expertise and leadership in this role,” said Dr. William Crow, director of the LUAG and professor of practice in art, architecture, and design. “After an extensive national search process that brought many strong candidates, I am delighted that we were able to bring Stacie back to Lehigh. She brings a wealth of knowledge in arts education and also extensive relationships with artists and organizations in the Lehigh Valley that will allow us to strengthen our engagement with both Lehigh and the local community."

Brennan also served as director of education at the Main Line Arts Center in Haverford, Pa., from 2004-2015. She holds an M.S. Ed. in leadership in museum education from New York’s Bank Street College, and graduated from Lehigh with a double major in art and marketing, with a minor in Spanish.
