The Nevada Museum of Art on May 11 announced Eddie Guth as its new E.L. Cord Museum School Director.
In the role, Guth will oversee the reopening of the Museum School for in-person classes — slated for June 2, according to a press release from the nonprofit art museum. He will also continue the museum’s efforts to expand art education to underrepresented communities.
Most recently, Guth spent the last 10 years as an educator and program director for the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows.
“When I moved to Reno and visited the Museum for the first time, I was overjoyed to see the gorgeous building, of course, and also the variety of art displayed within its walls,” Guth said in a statement. “The vital role the museum plays in this community is evident, and I couldn’t be more excited to join the team and extend the Museum’s impact in our region.”
Guth earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute.
“Eddie is passionate about serving all the various communities and teens in our region, and to providing access to the arts,” Clair Muñoz, the Charles N. Mathewson Senior Director of Education and Engagement at the Nevada Museum of Art, said in a statement. “We look forward to having Eddie join us as we plan to open the Museum School for in person classes in the coming months.”
Guth joined the Museum team in March 2021.
