Inside the NEU Video Series: What We Do – The Role of a Preparator


Monday, September 14, 2020 - Monday, September 21, 2020
All Day


In this session of Inside the NEU, sit in on the conversation as Museum Director Tracy Fitzpatrick and Associate Preparator Jose Smith ’94 discuss how the museum’s “prep team” plans, builds, and assists in creating the special moments that patrons have as they experience the works on view.

Learn how Jose’s time as a Purchase College student (including his first visit to the Museum as a party crasher!) and his training as an artist laid the groundwork for his current responsibilities. And discover his passion for introducing current Purchase students to the magical behind-the-scenes work and inspire them to become the next generation of museum professionals.
