Green completed a master’s degree in curatorial studies from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, and a Ph.D. in art history from the University of Texas at Austin. She has also held curatorial positions at MoMA PS1, the Portland Art Museum, and the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art.

Kevin Burns, who joined EPMA’s curatorial department in 2017, was named associate curator in November 2018. He has organized exhibitions such as “West Texas: Waypoint and Home” and “Julie Speed: East of the Sun and West of the Moon,” drawing from the museum’s permanent collection of American, European, and Mexican art.
