Meet Zoë Fejeran, Western Gallery’s new museum educator

Zoë Fejeran is the Western Gallery's new museum educator

Museum educator Zoë Fejeran wouldn’t usually advise visitors to the Western Gallery to take off their shoes in the space, but barefoot Dance students moving through the Isamu Noguchi sculptures is one of her favorite moments in the gallery since she took on her role at the start of fall quarter.

Ferejan graduated from Western in 2017 with BFA in Art History and minors in English and Anthropology. She went on to get her master’s in Art Education at the University of Texas, Austin, before returning to her alma mater.

She spoke with Western Today about breaking down barriers to art and why she wants to get more students — from Western and local schools — into the gallery.
