Erin M. Greenwald

NEW ORLEANS – Allison Reid, deputy director for interpretation and audience engagement at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), has announced Erin M. Greenwald as curator of programs.

         As the first person to serve in this new position at NOMA, Greenwald will primarily be responsible for advancing the museum’s role as a cultural convener within the community and a catalyst for critical discourse surrounding the arts and society. Greenwald will curate learning opportunities and engagement with visitors throughout the museum through meaningful programs, events, and collaborations on the local, national and international level.

         "As Curator of Programs at the New Orleans Museum of Art, I look forward to working with NOMA staff and community collaborators to develop dynamic, interdisciplinary programs that celebrate arts and culture and embrace the rich diversity of our collections and region's inhabitants," said Greenwald.

         Prior to joining NOMA, Greenwald was senior curator and historian at The Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC), where she served as project director of the National Endowment for the Humanities–funded traveling exhibition “Purchased Lives: The American Slave Trade from 1808 to 1865.” She holds a PhD in History from Ohio State University and is the author of “Marc-Antoine Caillot and the Company of the Indies in Louisiana: Trade in the French Atlantic World” (LSU Press, 2016). She is also the editor of “A Company Man: The Remarkable French Atlantic Journey of a Clerk for the Company of the Indies” (THNOC, 2013). Greenwald has lectured widely in the United States, Canada and France, and has been an active proponent of increasing public awareness of marginalized histories through community engagement. She serves as chair of the city of New Orleans Tricentennial Commission’s subcommittee on erecting markers designating sites of the domestic slave trade.
