ACP Portfolio Reviewer – Maria Kelly

Maria Kelly

The ACP Portfolio Review on Saturday, October 10th, is filling-up! (And the two additional workshops only have a few spaces left...)

We're fired-up about our list of reviewers this year, and wanted to share with you bios of a few of the reviewers (and their photos, of course). Here's Maria Kelly!

Register for the ACP 2015 Portfolio Review today!

Maria Kelly
"Maria Kelly is the Curatorial Assistant of Photography and Exhibitions at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Maria joined the High in May 2011 after graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Arts in Art History. Since her appointment Maria has helped organize more than fifteen photography installations, including exhibitions featuring the work of Thomas Struth, Richard Misrach, Abelardo Morell, and Wynn Bullock, among others. Most recently she curated Helen Levitt: In the Street, and assisted with the Gordon Parks: Segregation Story and Leonard Freed: Black in White America exhibitions. Maria co-authored the chronology in the recent Wynn Bullock: Revelations publication, which accompanied the 2014 exhibition by the same name at the High. She also serves as the exhibitions coordinator for the Museum’s collection and manages logistics for all collection installations across seven curatorial departments.

Prior to her current position, Maria developed educational materials and programming for both school and public programs for the Education Department at the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens. As the Assistant to the Dean for the Franklin Residential College at the University of Georgia, Maria proposed and helped implement two study abroad courses that focused on studying art in prominent museums in England and Spain.

Maria is happy to see projects across all photographic genres that are still in development. She participates in the portfolio review as a way of learning about emerging series and engaging with the community, and not as a process for acquiring work for the Museum."
