Genevieve Martin A 2011
Running For: 2021 Council
Having grown up in NYC and enjoyed the honor of attending The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art (A’11) I possess a deep commitment to the role civic responsibility plays within the arts community. As I earn my MA in arts administration I am interested in investigating how to better connect, evaluate and even enforce an institution to its mission and community. I’m excited to apply my development acumen to encourage a stronger alumni network, stabilize its financial plan and work towards a tuition-free Cooper Union.
Bio: As the External Affairs Specialist at the Center for Italian Modern Art, a start-up exhibition and research center based in SoHo, I possess extensive experience in strategic planning, donor cultivation and fundraising. My previous work includes curatorial assisting with three exhibitions at The Morgan Library (Dubuffet’s Drawings, 1935 — 1962, Dreams in Dust: The Pastels of Lucas Samaras, and Martin Puryear: Multiple Dimensions) as well as the reinstallation of The New Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands and the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
