The Museum:

Located in an art moderne 1950s former department store building with a
two-story expansive open gallery, the Arlington Art Museum (AMA) is the
anchor of a revitalizing downtown Arlington. The oldest art organization in
Arlington, it began 45 years ago as an art association and fulfilled its
dream to become a museum in 1989. Since then the AMA has achieved a level of
national recognition seldom achieved by museums this size. Its legacy of
exhibitions of cutting-edge contemporary Texas art has earned the attention
of art lovers in the Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex, around the State of
Texas and across the United States.

The Juror:

Dr. Maura Reilly is the Curator of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for
Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, the first museum exhibition space of
its kind in the world, home of Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party. Prior to
assuming this position, Reilly taught art history and women’s studies at
Tufts University, as well as courses at Pratt Institute, Vassar College, and
at her alma mater, The Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where
she received her PhD in 2000 in Modern and Contemporary Art. Reilly has
curated, lectured and published extensively, both nationally and
internationally and has been a regular contributor to Art in American since
1998. In 2005 she received one of Art Table’s prestigious Future Women
Leadership Awards and in 2006 she received the President’s Mid Career Award
from the Women’s Caucus for Art. She is an active member of the National
Organization for Women, International Association of Art Criticism, Art
Table and the National Committee of the Feminist Art Project. Most recently
Reilly co-curated, with Linda Nochlin, a major exhibition of international
contemporary feminist art titled Global Feminisms, which inaugurated the
Brooklyn Museum’s new Center for Feminist Art in March of 2007. Reilly is
the author of a monograph on Ghada Amer (New York: Gregory R. Miller & Co.,
2007).
