Kitsa Behringer Joins MOA Education Department
The BYU Museum of Art is excited to welcome Kitsa Behringer as the newest MOA staff member.
Kitsa Behringer received a master’s degree in Museum Education from the George Washington University, and master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Art History and Curatorial Studies from Brigham Young University. While her area of study is Early Christian, Byzantine, and Medieval art, her passion is education. Her museum experience includes holding the positions of Registrar at the Kimball Art Center, Educator at the Library of Congress, and Education and Programs Coordinator at the National Museum of Industrial History.
At the MOA, Behringer is the newest of the Museum Educators. Her role as an Educator is to create opportunities for the public, the university community, and the local youth to engage with art. She will also mentor student employees, design family programs like the ever-popular Van Gogh to Play-Dough program for toddlers, and work with curators to create educational materials for exhibitions at the museum.
“As an Art Historian, I’m so excited to return to the fine arts,” Behringer said. “I love looking at art, I love connecting emotionally with art, I love talking about art, and I love creating art.”
Behringer fills the place of Lynda Palma, who retired from the MOA this month after over 25 years.
