Inside the NEU: Director Tracy Fitzpatrick with Associate Preparator Jose Smith ’94


In this session of Inside the NEU, sit in on the conversation as Museum Director Tracy Fitzpatrick and Associate Preparator Jose Smith ’94 discuss how the museum’s “prep team” plans, builds, and assists in creating the special moments that patrons have as they experience the works on view. 


Learn how Jose’s time as a Purchase College student (including his first visit to the Museum as a party crasher!) and his training as an artist laid the groundwork for his current responsibilities. And discover his passion for introducing current Purchase students to the magical behind-the-scenes work and inspire them to become the next generation of museum professionals.
