Arts & Science Center names new curator of collections and exhibitions

The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, 701 Main St., has named Courtney Taylor as the new curator of collections and exhibitions.

Taylor’s first task upon joining the ASC team was to hang the “Women to Watch 2013” exhibition from the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Taylor holds a bachelor’s degree in history and art history and a master’s degree in museum studies. Her curatorial experience includes the Gilcrease Museum, the Philbrook Museum of Art, and most recently, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Fla.

The public is invited to attend the opening of the “Women to Watch 2013” exhibition and welcome Taylor to Pine Bluff. The reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday. Exhibition curators and artists will be on-hand and light refreshments will be served.
