Courtney Kezlarian

Courtney Kezlarian is a junior at Gallatin who studies art history and museum studies—specifically about how art is made accessible through institutions. This opportunity to be a curator for the Gallatin Arts Festival gives her a new, useful lens through which to view her discipline. Born in a suburb just outside Detroit, Michigan, Courtney likes to think she balances her original Midwestern politeness with her newly acquired New York attitude. Many think she’s failed. She hopes to continue her education into a masters and PhD in art history. Her ideal gallery show would involve a screaming match between a lover of conceptualism and an expert in Sèvres porcelain production.
