The Asian Studies Department congratulates Molly Baker Halstead ’11, who recently accepted a position as Engagement Services Manager at Centre College’s Norton Center for the Arts! Molly, who double-majored in Asian Studies and Art History at Berea, studied in Japan through the KIIS program and assisted visiting scholar Dr. Sandy Kita in cataloging rare Japanese items in the College’s Asian art collection during her years here. After three years of professional experience as Curator and Art Gallery Manager at Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia’s David L. Dickirson Gallery in her native West Virginia, Molly returned to Kentucky to complete her M.A. in Art History and Visual Studies at the University of Kentucky. During the 2018-19 academic year, Molly served as Assistant Curator of the College Art Collections and Manager of the Doris Ulmann Galleries here on campus, so we are delighted that she will continue to remain in the area after completing her work at Berea.
