A grant helped to make the appointment possible

BRIDGEPORT - Art historian Maura Brennan has been appointed Curator of Prints and Drawings at The Housatonic Museum of Art at Housatonic Community College, according to a statement.

Brennan has interned at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, held an NEA fellowship position at the RISD Museum in Providence, R.

She earned a bachelor's degree art history from Barnard College, Columbia University and a master's art history from Williams College in Massachusetts, the statment said.

Brennan said, also in the statement, "I love running an active print room and am most comfortable in this kind of a setting."
