9 TO COMPLEMENT ALL OF THE EXCITING CHANGES associated with the reinstallation is our new waynd- ing system which makes it easy for visitors to navigate toand withinthe museum. Interior and exterior signs both xed and temporary create cohesiveness ease of use and a warm welcome. By standardizing what we communicate and how we have enhanced the visitor experience in an elegant and intentional way. Although the best navigation tools are intuitive natural and built landmarks clearly dened pathways light and soundsigns displays and maps provide additional direction. As SCMA evolves so too does the museum eld and we are pleased to play a role in educating the institu- tional leaders of tomorrow. The Brown Post-Baccalau- reate Fellowship program provides a mentored intro- ductory work experience to recent college graduates in advance of a career in the nonprot creative sec- tor. Generous funding from The Brown Foundation Inc. of Houston Texas allowed the museum to add a third fellowship in museum marketing and commu- nications this year in addition to ongoing opportuni- ties in both museum education and curatorial work. Jessica Nicoll notes that in addition to bringing fresh ideas and creative energy to our work at SCMA The Brown Post-Baccalaureate program grows directly out of the museums commitment to educating and pre- paring future generations of museum leaders for the important roles they will play in preserving interpret- ing and sharing past and present culture worldwide. top to bottom left to right Gina Hall leading an Open Eyes gallery conversation William Bill Myers in the conservation studio African art gallery Dave Andrews in refreshed lobby new waynding sign Brown Post-Baccalaureate Fellows Colleen McDermott Jessica Berube and Emma Cantrell new installation of art after 1950 Now that the museums two-phase ve-year Gallery Redesign Project is complete visitors will experience moving from the top oor down African American and European art after 1800 American Ancient and European art before 1800 the changing exhibition gallery and on the lower level Art after 1950 and Asian artincluding the three new spaces the Carol T.
