Welcome Laura Marsh, our new Curator of Exhibitions

The Art and Culture Center is pleased to announce Laura Marsh as its Curator of Exhibitions. Marsh is the former Gallery Director and Curator for Seton Gallery at the University of New Haven, West Haven, CT.

“We are very excited for Laura to join the Art and Culture Center as our new curator,” said Joy Satterlee, Executive Director of the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood. “Laura possesses the attributes we are looking for as the Center’s curator. She’s an accomplished individual who brings a background in contemporary art, museum education, and public outreach.”

“I am eager to work with the team at the Art and Culture Center,” said Marsh. “I’m impressed with the quality and variety of exhibitions, outreach, and programming in the galleries. I particularly enjoy learning about how previous installations engaged viewers as participants in the dialogue of artist’s works. My goal is to support interdisciplinary practices, form partnerships, and utilize all of the resources of the Center to engage the community.”
