Published: Nov 16, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 16, 2012) — The Kentucky Art Education Association (KyAEA) has named the Art Museum at the University of Kentucky's Deborah Borrowdale-Cox as the 2012 Kentucky Art and Museum Educator of the Year.

 

This will be the second time for Borrowdale-Cox, the Art Museum at UK’s director of education, to have been awarded this honor. The KyAEA also named her the Kentucky Art Advocate of the Year in 2010.

 

"Her impact on art education is commendable," said Kathy Walsh-Piper, director of the Art Museum at UK.

 

Borrowdale-Cox has worked for the museum since 1998, creating and providing educational programs for students and adults across the state. She designs a curriculum to train docents and teachers for each new exhibition.

 

Borrowdale-Cox earned a bachelor's degree in fine arts and art history from Scripps College and a master's degree in museum education from George Washington University. Before she began her position with the Art Museum at UK, she was the director of education for the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the program director for the Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County in California, as well as a museum education program specialist for the Yokohama International School in Japan.

 

The mission of the Art Museum at UK, part of the UK College of Fine Arts, is to promote the understanding and appreciation of art to enhance the quality of life for the people of Kentucky through collecting, exhibiting, preserving and interpreting outstanding works of visual art from all cultures.
