Conversations With... Jen Mergel
Jen Mergel is a cultural leader, curator, and educator passionate about connections—between art and people, ideas and impact, vision and service. For over 20 years, she has promoted inclusive engagement with contemporary art in museums, on campuses, and in the public realm. She has developed nationally newsworthy exhibitions, talks, and programs in her leadership roles at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, the Association of Art Museum Curators, Voices in Contemporary Art, and most recently Olmsted Now. Boston-born and based, she is fiercely committed to championing culture makers, history keepers, and change agents who deepen social and spatial justice, locally and globally. She is driven to initiate, innovate and collaborate on projects that foster community curiosity, connective capital and cultural equity through the intersection of the arts with a wide range of disciplines. As of November 2021, she is the inaugural Director of Experience and Cultural Partnerships for Boston's Emerald Necklace Conservancy.
