Cheyene Adams is an emerging curator and cultural producer based in Baltimore, Maryland. Originally from Savannah, Georgia, she earned a BS in Digital Media Arts from Bowie State University in 2020. Cheyene has gained significant experience in the arts by interning and assisting in projects at The Phillips Collection (Washington, DC), Maryland Institute Black Archives (Baltimore, MD), the National Park Service Chesapeake Bay (Annapolis, MD), and Harpers Ferry Design Center (Harpers Ferry WV). She is currently a graduate student—and Leslie King Hammond Graduate Fellow— in the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Curatorial Practice MFA program, where her research is focused on mental health and self-care practices within BIPOC artistic communities.
Project: Cheyene will support the Curatorial collections team in the ongoing maintenance of digital records related to the Museum’s archive and collections and also conduct research in the Museum Archives to support the Museum Archivist.
