Annie Storr (Clark/Kress Fellow in Museum Education) is founder of the Art Education Department at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC. Previously, she was head of Education Programs for the American Association of Museums, as well as Director of Arts Management at American University. Her academic specialty is pre-Civil War narratives in American art. Storr was an author/contributor to Building a Nation of Learners, the first policy statement on lifelong learning and cross-disciplinary learning studies produced by the United States federal government. Her Clark/Kress project probes the connection between humanist aesthetic theory and art experiences by the public, in a series of close readings of art in the Clark & Kress Collections, in terms of their potential for ethical inquiry and values clarification by viewers.
