The Greenwich Historical Society has a new director of education with a lengthy resume of teaching positions in museums from coast to coast.
I am thrilled to be able to use my past experience to further the mission of the Greenwich Historical Society, the new education director, Jaime Villaneda, said in a prepared statement. I am already impressed by the beauty of the site, the strength of the collection and archives, and the professionalism and warmth of my co-workers.
Originally hailing from Zacatecas, Mexico, Villaneda attended Yale University, where he received his undergraduate degree in Latin-American studies and art history. He lives in Brooklyn.
Most recently, Villaneda earned a masters degree in museum studies from New York University while serving as a curatorial intern at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan.
Villaneda was also the associate director of education at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, where he lectured and supervised family, teacher and adult education. He also held education positions at the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena and The Ryman Program for young Artists in Los Angeles.
