After 15 years with the Smithsonian, Jane Milosch is departing to pursue new opportunities with the University of Glasgow.
Jane served as founding director the Smithsonian Provenance Research Initiative, enabling the Institution to make great strides in examining its WWII-era collections. She served as the U.S. representative to Germany’s International Schwabing Art Trove Task Force in Berlin, organized the wonderfully successful and recently concluded German/American Provenance Research Exchange Program involving key U.S. and German museums, and co-edited the benchmark volume “Collecting and Provenance: A Multidisciplinary Approach” published by Rowman & Littlefield this year.
Jane served in a number of key roles over the course of her Smithsonian career, curating groundbreaking exhibitions, such as Grant Wood’s Studio: Birthplace of American Gothic at the Renwick Gallery, serving as Senior Program Officer for Art in the Under Secretary’s Office, bolstering the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship program, and aiding numerous transdisciplinary projects, as well as the annual Smithsonian Craft Show.
