The first program in a new series where a guest curator examines one object from our Special Collections. We welcome the Fairfield University Art Museum’s Curator of Education and Academic Engagement Dr. Michelle DiMarzo for discussion of the library’s volumes of John Gould’s A Monograph of the Trochilidae, or family of humming-birds.

Dr. Michelle DiMarzo is the Curator of Education and Academic Engagement at Fairfield University Art Museum. She is a 2007 graduate of Fairfield with a B.A. in Art History and English. DiMarzo went on to pursue graduate degrees in Art History, specializing in Italian Renaissance visual art. She received a Ph.D. in Art History from Temple University in 2017. Before returning to Fairfield, she held the Phyllis G. Gordan/Samuel H. Kress Foundation Two-Year Pre-doctoral Rome Prize at the American Academy in Rome. Prior to that, she taught courses at Fairfield University and Temple University, and was also a Spotlight Gallery Conversation educator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
