Art Talk - A Week in the Life of a Curator

Art Talk - A Week in the Life of a Curator

With over 25 years of experience in the art world, Mark Ormond has organized dozens of museum exhibitions, and authored, edited, and contributed to numerous brochures, catalogs, and publications on artists. During his 10-year association with the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, he was senior curator and deputy director for collections and programs. Mark became the first curator and was subsequently appointed director of the Center for the Fine Arts (now the Miami Art Museum). Mark is also the curator of the Arts Advocates’ collection on exhibit in our gallery at the Crossings at Siesta Key mall and at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. 

Mark will explain the complexity of planning, fundraising, acquiring, and transporting art … everything involved in creating a successful show. He will also discuss how the role of a curator has changed in today’s art world with new forms of emerging art (videos, NFT’s and performance art). Wine will be served with the talk.
