Katie Ericson

Visitor Services Coordinator

A native of North Carolina, I grew up in Charlotte and attended Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. There I received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Art Management--a program combined studio practice, art history, museum practicum, and business courses. I got my start in museums working for the University’s contemporary art museum, the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts. I worked as an Exhibitions Assistant at the TCVA both as a student and after graduation.

During my undergraduate studies, I completed an education internship at the Mint Museum, and fell in love with museum education. In 2012 I began working at a progressive, arts-integrated and project-based, public charter school in downtown Durham, N.C. while pursuing my MA in Art Education from the University of Florida. My research focused on art education in settings outside of the traditional K-12 classroom.

Upon graduation in 2014, I was offered the GlaxoSmithKline Youth and Family Programs Education Fellowship at the North Carolina Museum of Art. At NCMA, I developed, prototyped, and assessed a variety of new educational materials and opportunities for families and Pre-K students with an emphasis on developing content for their 165-acre museum park and outdoor sculptures. I joined the ZMA in the summer of 2015.
