Rebecca Dearlove

Development Specialist

Rebecca Dearlove has worked in fundraising for the past five years with the University of Texas at Austin, both at the Blanton Museum of Art and the School of Architecture. Coming from a humanities background, with an undergraduate degree in Art History and Museums Studies and a MA from UT in Art Education, Rebecca concentrated much of her time to community arts programming, working with grass-root organizations and non-profits. One most notably in Austin, Fusebox Festival, a multi-interdisciplinary arts festival that brings local, national, and international artists to Austin.

While in graduate school, her thesis and independent research allowed her to work closely with the Museum of Modern Art's film archives to research the trajectory of film programming in public settings. After completing her MA in Art Education, she taught English at a university in Croatia on a Fulbright scholarship and returned to Austin to work at the Blanton Museum of Art as a Development Associate. After two years, she transitioned to working in fundraising for higher education at the School of Architecture.
