WILMINGTON — Five months after its new executive director was named in Heather Wilson, Cameron Art Museum has announced a new deputy director of operations as well.

Georgia Mastroieni is taking over the title. Mastroieni has worked at CAM since 2006 and oversaw the family and youth education and outreach programs, including Kids@CAM, Art Explorers, Kids@CAMp, Closing the Gap and Connections.

In her new role, she will interweave educational opportunities into the visitor experience, from the front desk when people check in to the souvenirs bought at the museum shop upon exiting.

“Mastroieni has led the museum’s Education Committee for many years, shepherding CAM’s relationships with over 30 community partners, including spearheading CAM’s accessibility initiatives,” Wilson said in a press release.

Mastroieni led a group of students from GLOW Academy through its new exhibit “Monument” last week.

“She is the chief liaison with local school systems and youth development organizations and leads community outreach to a variety of organizations — from Good Shepherd to Wilmington Housing Authority,” Wilson continued in the press release. “She is a compassionate and visionary leader who believes in the power of inclusivity, and this is articulated in her service to the community through Cameron Art Museum.”

“Monument” is a two-year project in the works, celebrating American and Black history, including abolitionists who freed slaves, victims of Wilmington’s 1898 Coup and Massacre, and those who fought for their own freedom during the Civil War. The exhibition — read more here — features work by Stephen Hayes, Radcliffe Bailey, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Kara Walker, Sonya Clark, and Alison Saar, among others. It’s open through Mar. 31, 2024.
