MRM welcomes new Curator of Collections

The Millicent Rogers Museum is pleased to welcome its new Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, Michelle Lanteri.

Lanteri has worked in curatorial roles at the Couse-Sharp Historic Site here in Taos, the University Art Gallery and the University Museum at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in Oklahoma, and the GreenHill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro.

With degrees in art history, museum studies and media studies, Lanteri is strongly interested in the intersections between the arts and cultures of the Southwest.

"The cross-cultural intersections that we see in the different art forms in this collection and what we can learn about Southwest cultural expressions through visual languages," is the most interesting thing about the MRM for Lanteri. "The collection offers something meaningful for everyone who visits. Through these kinds of personal connections, I look forward to meeting and collaborating with community members locally, in the region, and beyond."

Michelle Lanteri grew up in Florida and North Carolina and entered the museum field in 2012. From 2014 to 2017, she completed a master's degree at New Mexico State University, and from 2017 to 2021, she held a Mellon Foundation PhD fellowship in Native American art history at the University of Oklahoma. Her dissertation focuses on Native women's arts and exhibitions in Northern New Mexico.

A crucial question for our newest Taoseña: red or green? "Christmas every time," she replied.
