Anna Mecugni Joins Tulane’s Newcomb Art Museum as Curator and Coordinator of Academic Programming

Newcomb Art Museum has appointed Anna Mecugni, exhibition assistant for contemporary art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as curator and coordinator of academic programming.

“I am thrilled to envision stimulating new ways that Tulane’s students, faculty members, and community partners could benefit from the Newcomb Art Museum’s resources and programs to their greatest advantage,” Mecugni said. “Becoming a catalyst for a broad, meaningful integration of the museum’s offerings with the school’s curriculum is a very exciting prospect.”

Mecugni has served in curatorial positions at New York’s MoMA, the Venice Biennale, James Gallery at the CUNY Graduate Center, and the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College. She is a professor of art history, film studies, and Italian language and culture at Vassar College, Temple University, and the University of Pennsylvania, where she was granted the Provost’s Award for Teaching Excellence. Recently, Mecugni coedited and authored the catalogue that accompanied the exhibition of the Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
