Bruce Museum in Greenwich appoints Margarita Karasoulas as art curator


The Bruce Museum in Greenwich has announced the appointment of Margarita Karasoulas as Art Curator.

Karasoulas has been Assistant Curator of American Art at the Brooklyn Museum since 2017. Earlier in her career, she was at the Bruce Museum as Zvi Grunberg’s Resident Intern in 2012-13 and returned in 2016 as Guest Curator “Electric Paris” , an exhibition highlighting the aesthetic impact of the French capital’s transition from gas lighting to electric lighting in works of art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Karasoulas joins the Bruce on November 29 and will focus on the inaugural exhibits that will welcome the public when the museum reopens with its new expanded space at the end of 2022.

“I have long been impressed with the history of the Bruce Museum in presenting ambitious and scholarly exhibits, as well as its interdisciplinary approach to art and science,” said Karasoulas. “Returning to The Bruce in this new role is an exciting opportunity to help advance the Museum’s mission at this critical time. “

Karasoulas holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Delaware and an MA in Art History from Southern Methodist University and a BA in History and Art History from Lafayette Middle School.
