Julia Marciari-Alexander '89
 

Julia Marciari-Alexander, a Wellesley College Art History major in the Class of 1989, spoke to our very own student-run Art History Club this April about her current ground-breaking position, the impact a Wellesley education has had on her life and career, and the general status of women in the arts today.

As museum administration has long been a male-dominated field, Marciari-Alexander's ascendance has been a real testament to her own talents and to the education that Wellesley College was able to provide. The Walters Art Museum first opened as public institution in 1934, and although a number of women were involved in the founding of the museum, it had never had a woman leading its administration until Marciari-Alexander came on board in 2013.

The Wellesley Daily Shot featured Julia Marciari-Alexander on June 27, 2016. A conversation with Marciari-Alexander around the time of her Art History Club visit was published in the Wellesley News back in April. Check out both articles to learn more about the work being done by this alum!
