Perry native joins art museum in Arkansas

Chad Alligood, of Perry, has joined the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark., as assistant curator for special projects. Alligood will work with museum President Don Bacigalupi on a new initiative to develop a major exhibition program, according to a news release.

“Chad is the ideal curator to help shape Crystal Bridges’ new exhibition initiative,” Bacigalupi said in the release. “His experience in research and organization for a range of exhibitions will serve us very well as we move forward with new projects.”

Alligood’s collegiate experience includes a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University, a master’s degree from the University of Georgia and doctoral coursework at City University of New York. He has served as adjunct professor of art history at Brooklyn College and curatorial intern for collections at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the release states.

“As a native of the rural South, I have followed the story of Crystal Bridges from its beginnings with great excitement,” Alligood said in the release. “The museum’s commitment to fostering meaningful connections for all through the experience of art dovetails with my own experiences as a curator and educator. I look forward to contributing to this exciting new exhibition initiative while getting to know the people and places of Northwest Arkansas.”
