Art Museum Curator

Collections of artwork in museums are overseen and managed by museum curators. With an artistic eye and a huge responsibility, curators interpret art to group, contextualize and showcase it in museums and galleries. Curators are not just in charge of finding art and showcasing it to the public; they must care for it and understand the business and public relations sides of the art world.
