Jean MK Miller has been named the new associate dean of administrative affairs for the University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Design.
“This is an exciting time for faculty, students and arts professionals in visual art and design,” said Miller, who began the position in January. “The opportunities for research and cross-disciplinary, community and entrepreneurial partnerships are endless. I am thrilled to join Dean Robert Milnes and the College of Visual Arts and Design in exploring those possibilities and supporting the vision for the college and UNT.”
Most recently, Miller served as chair of art and design in the College of Fine Arts and Communication at Towson University in the greater Baltimore area.
She served as the 2008 president of the National Council of Art Administrators and was elected in February 2010 to the College Art Association (CAA) Board of Directors for a four-year term.
As task force chair on the College Art Association’s Professional Practices Committee since 2008, she has chaired the Standards and Guidelines committees to create an original document for Academic Art Administrators and the Master of Fine Arts degree revision guidelines.
Miller is also a member of the International Council of Fine Arts Deans (ICFAD), National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), Americans for the Arts, and the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.
In recent years, her paintings have been purchased by the Greater Baltimore Medical Center, exhibited throughout the United States and represented in numerous private and public collections.
Miller holds a master of fine arts degree in studio from California College of the Arts with additional graduate studies in arts administration and studio at Harvard University, New York University and Long Island University.
