SIS alumnus appointed new archivist at Carnegie Museum of Art


Effective May 16, Dominique Luster will be joining the Carnegie Museum of Art as the Charles “Teenie” Harris Archivist. In this position, Luster will manage and oversee the research, digitization, publication, and exhibition of more than 70,000 images shot by Harris from the 1930s through the 1970s.

Luster earned her MLIS in the Archives and Information Management program from the University of Pittsburgh School of Information Sciences.

“I was well aware of Teenie Harris as this legendary figure, a great photographer of the 20th-century black experience,” said Luster. “Moving to Pittsburgh, I saw a whole new dimension of Teenie, as a member of this community. Someone people remember, whose photographs they cherish.”
