Jill Deupi, director and chief curator of University Museums at Fairfield University, will be the new director of the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami in August.

At Fairfield University, Deupi was founding director and chief curator of the Bellarmine Museum of Art, which welcomed many thousands of visitors since opening to the public in 2010. She curated close to 20 loan shows at the Bellarmine and Fairfield’s Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery, which she directed since 2013, securing significant external support from a range of donors, corporate sponsors, and foundations.

Highlights of her programming achievements include the establishment of a distinguished lecture series in the visual arts funded by the Robert Lehman Foundation, the implementation of a hugely successful Family Day program at the Bellarmine Museum, and the development of a broad range of programming in arts education and engagement. She instituted the museum’s cultural tours abroad program and oversaw its recent inclusion as a member of the Connecticut Art Trail.
