Podcast Episode 144: Naomi Slipp

Welcome, Dr. Naomi Slipp, the Douglas and Cynthia Crocker Endowed Chair for the Chief Curator and Director of Museum Learning at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. Dr. Slipp oversees collections, curatorial, and museum learning across the museum, and manages 14 staff and about 100 volunteers.

Prior to her arrival at the Museum, she was the Associate Professor of Art History at Auburn University at Montgomery, Alabama where she taught art history from the Renaissance to Modern Art. Naomi also managed the University’s Cason McDermott Art Gallery and directed the Museum Studies Program. She holds a Ph.D. in art history from Boston University from the University of Chicago, and a BA from Hampshire College.

Naomi served as the Executive Editor of Panorama: the Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art and worked at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Harvard Art Museums, Terra Foundation for American Art, and Boston University Art Gallery. She has presented her research widely, including across the United States and in Canada, Belgium, and the UK, and has also published extensively.

The Artists Index co-founder and Visual Arts Podcast Host, Ron Fortier, talks with Dr. Naomi Slipp about her career, beginnings, and passion for Art. This episode was recorded with Zoom in 2023. We continue using Zoom, our podcast host’s studios, and our studio at the Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and our journey is still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
