Erica Marin has a B.F.A in Art/Museum Conservation and an M.A. History/Public History. Before her formal education, she was an art maker and her work primarily focused on identity and memory. Marin became interested in the curatorial process because she realized that so much of what she wanted to say involves a multidisciplinary approach. Marin’s job duties at the El Paso Museum of History also include overseeing the stewardship of the permanent collection and exhibition development. Together, with the museum team she develops ideas and themes for exhibition and educational programming. Her role requires her to wear many hats and to constantly exercise her creativity and organizational talents.
