The ASU-LACMA Master’s Fellowship in Art History was founded in 2018 as a partnership between ASU and LACMA with the aim to culturally diversify the leadership of art museums in the United States by supporting the professional growth of staff of color already employed at museums. The three-year degree program combines rigorous academic training with on-the-job experience to develop a new generation of diverse museum professionals and to accelerate the careers of talented individuals. The program has trained staff from across the museum field, including curators, educators, directors, registrars, and development, research, and administrative staff. The fellows earn their master’s degree in art history from the ASU School of Art’s distinguished art history program in the Herberger Institute, while also working at LACMA, the ASU Art Museum, and the Pérez Art Museum Miami.

The first cohort of fellows graduated in May 2021, and one fellow graduated this past May. All of the fellows who completed the program have been promoted in their institutions or have new roles with greater responsibility in other institutions.

Recently, LACMA and ASU announced the addition of the Heard Museum to the program, further expanding the partnership’s national consortium of museums. Beginning this fall, Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, the renowned contemporary Latin American curator and art historian became the new director of the ASU-LACMA program. 

This fall there are nine fellows in the program: five are second-year fellows, and the other four are just beginning the program. The current fellows are Ellen Joo, Emily Le, Jackeline Lopez, Stephanie Rouinfar, Jayne Manuel, Mariama Salia, and Deliasofia Zacarias, all of whom work at LACMA; Emily Valdes, who works at the Pérez Art Museum Miami, and Roshii Montaño, who works at the Heard Museum.
