Alisha Kerlin is the executive director of UNLV’s Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art. Kerlin's expertise entails the curation and exhibition of art works, and facilitating connections between the general public and media with local artists.
Prior to joining UNLV, Kerlin worked as an art instructor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and an archivist at the Greene Naftali Gallery in New York. Since joining the university in 2012, Kerlin has focused on leveling barriers that limit access to the arts by creating initiatives that target the academic community, first-time visitors, and K-12 schoolchildren.
