Jenny Keller Named Peabody Essex Museum Fellow

Jenny KellerGilcrease Museum is excited to announce Jenny Keller, administrative assistant in the executive office, has been named a Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) Native American Fellow and will participate in PEM’s 11-week program this summer. Currently a second-year student in The University of Tulsa’s Museum Science and Management master’s program, Keller was one of six fellows selected.

PEM seeks to train the next generation of museum and cultural institution leaders. During her time in Salem, Mass., Keller will focus on curatorial writing, exhibition planning and brand management, fundraising, communications and organizational politics.

When asked what she was looking forward to the most, she didn’t know where to begin.

“I’m looking forward to everything,” said Keller. “From day one, they have made a point to stress the importance of giving us access to all parts of the museum and every professional and mentor available. I will have full reign to pull across departments and pick the brains of the established professionals throughout the museum’s many disciplines. I also can’t wait to meet the other fellows and experience New England.”

We congratulate Jenny on this outstanding achievement!
