Britt Royer is the Curator at Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art.
What about your museum excites you?
Working with students and creating physical spaces to explore ideas and question discourses through discovery.
What’s one thing — either industry/work-related or not — you learned in the past month?
We have an exhibition on view now that explores radical joy through the concept of what it means to ‘hold it lightly.’ Through giving tours and writing articles, I’ve been thinking about this concept quite a bit. This past month, I’ve been learning to integrate the philosophy into how I show up for my work and projects.
What about the AAMG mission excites you?
AAMG provides support and community for a unique niche of museum employees. I love the collaborative nature, enthusiasm, and experimental approach to education.
How do you decompress from tough work days?
Trail running in the redwoods and playing with my dog, Goldie Hawn. (She’s a rescue that passes as a Golden Corgi mix).
Print or audio books?
I do both, depending on the nature of the text and the cadence of the audio voice. Recently, I listened to Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Big Magic,” and I’m currently reading Jake Bittle’s “The Great Displacement.”
