MUSEUM PROJECTS

return

Jason Miller is presently and was the lead Museum Media Specialists on the following projects at The Art Museum of The University of Memphis. His project contributions were in the area of technology and communication. His duties ranged from creative solutions and problem solving-to engineering remote submission events-to supervising graduate assistants throughout various tasks during field operations and in the Museum. Electronic collections management, data solutions, public relations, social media outputs, website design and maintenance, digital audio and video, photography, security and being a key holder to the Museum, creating calls to artists, RFQ's, overseeing submission processes, facilitating the role of ArtLab Selections Committee Chair, serving as a member of the Women's History Month Executive Committee, and generating original idea contributions as part of a team are all part of Miller's role as the Museum Media Specialist. Miller is project manager and curator for the Annual Juried Exhibitions wherein he works with the juror in the selection process. He then arranges, lays out, hangs, lights, publicizes, and documents the exhibition events. Miller's background in photography and specialization in lighting is applied when he lights most exhibitions at AMUM.
