Member Spotlight:


Alexa Fairchild School Programs Manager Brooklyn Museum

My professional life at the Brooklyn Museum is dedicated to providing relevant and creative programs and services that empower K – 12 students and teachers to make connections with art. I am equally committed to contributing to the field of the museum education at large, as evident by seven years of service on the NYCMER Board of Trustees. I also serve on the Board of Directors for the Museum Education Roundtable (MER) an organization that publishes the Journal of Museum Education. I’ve worked at the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia (U.B.C.) in my hometown of Vancouver, Canada; Lower East Side Tenement Museum; and Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine. My graduate degrees are from Bank Street College of Education (M.S. in Ed.) and U.B.C. (M.A. in Art History). I tweet with @alexainbrooklyn.
