Marley Kendall

My name is Marley Kendall. I am originally from north Texas and now live in Lawrence, Kansas studying at the University of Kansas pursuing a B.A. in Art History with a minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

I am both a visual artist and art historian and I am passionate about making art education fun, accessible, and inclusive. I love educating younger people about art and inspiring new generations to get excited about and engaged with art. My main interests in art history lie within modern American art, 17th-century Dutch and Flemish Baroque art, East Asian art before 1900, and neoclassical American art.

I am on the Student Advisory Board for the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas campus where I plan student events at the museum, such as a student-curated and juried art exhibit that will be displayed late this April. My long-term career goal is to work either in higher education teaching art history or teaching visual art and art history to kindergarten to twelfth-grade students. I also am interested in working in non-profit art education through programs in museums and community organizations.

This internship at Grassroots Art Center through Ogallala Commons allows me to gain experience cataloging art and artists into an online database. During this summer I will be utilizing Logly, a digital software and guide for museums, to log permanent artists at the Grassroots Art Center into an online database, accessible by QR codes. I also will be assisting the Grassroots Art Center in various projects, like painting restoration and drafting grant proposals, in preparation for the opening of their third gallery.
