Welcome, Karintha Lowe, Mellon Public Humanities Fellow

The Hudson River Museum is thrilled to share that Karintha Lowe, PhD, American Studies program at Harvard University, will serve as the Mellon Public Humanities Fellow at Sarah Lawrence College and the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, NY.

At the College, Lowe will teach in Asian-American Studies, Museum Studies, and Visual Cultures, while engaging Sarah Lawrence students in her work at the Museum. At the Hudson River Museum, she will organize a number of exhibitions over two years, including in the Community & Partnership Gallery of the Museum’s new West Wing. The new gallery will offer an inviting and experimental space for displays that will feature local, regional, and emerging artists, including work by artists-in-residence, community collaborations, and inventive partnerships with schools and universities. Lowe will also plan and execute programming in support of the exhibitions, including talks, lectures and workshops, again with the aim of engaging the local community with the Museum, including K-12 students.

An interdisciplinary scholar and curator, Lowe has also worked at the New York Historical Society and the Museum of Chinese in America, where she developed public programming and exhibitions on Asian American multimedia art. She holds a BA, Macalester College; MA, Harvard University; and PhD, Harvard University.

Please join us in congratulating Lowe on her new role.
