Please join the Mennello Museum of American Art as we welcome Dr. Katherine Jentleson, Merrie and Dan Boone Curator of Folk and Self-Taught Art from the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Jentleson will be sharing a virtual lecture highlighting the importance and impact of self-taught artists on the 20th Century American Modern Art World.
Katherine “Katie” Jentleson, PhD, joined the High Museum of Art in September 2015 as the Merrie and Dan Boone Curator of Folk and Self-Taught Art. Before she became a curator, Dr. Jentleson worked as an arts journalist in New York. Through her editorial assignments and general experiences at galleries and museums there, she discovered her passion for self-taught artists and their historical legacy in the United States. In 2010, she began her graduate studies in art history at Duke University, where she focused her research on the rise of self-taught artists during the interwar period and completed her dissertation, “Gatecrashers: The First Generation of Outsider Artists in America,” in 2015.
