Short ResumeThe Museum Life with Carol Bossert (radio interview)
I am an exhibition designer and graphic designer who has been working in museums in Washington DC and New York City since 1998. I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology and Art, and an MA in Museum Studies. I am currently the Program Head and Assistant Professor of Design for the MA in Exhibition Design program at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at the George Washington University
. I am also a practicing Exhibition Designer, most recently employed for five years at the National Museum of American History where I designed notable exhibitions including The Gettysburg Address, The First Ladies Collection, Thomas Jefferson's Bible, and, on a lighter note, Phyllis Diller's Gag File, and FOOD: Transforming the American Table, 1950-2000 which includes Julia Child's kitchen.
I grew up living in Africa and Asia, including Zaire (now DRC), Rwanda, Senegal, and Bangladesh. I have also lived in Ireland, Washington DC and New York City.
I have a passion for creative problem solving, human-centered design practices, the relationship between space and meaning, and engaging people through physical, visual, and intellectual means.
Above all, I try not to take things too seriously.
