What is it like to work in an art museum? How have former CUNY students found opportunities in the visual arts? In this roundtable conversation, hear directly from MoMA staff members who are also CUNY alumni or professors about their own paths to careers in the arts. This conversation is designed specifically for CUNY undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in learning about and pursuing careers in visual art, arts education, and arts administration.
