Pamela Jean Tinnen is Lead Curator for Kimmel Windows. She works closely with an advisory committee Co-Chaired along with Grace Aneiza Ali, Professor/Faculty Fellow in the Department of Art & Public Policy at the Tisch School of the Arts, under the support and guidance of the Office of the Provost.
Proposals for exhibitions are accepted from NYU departments, schools, other units, alumni, full-time faculty members and graduate students who have secured the support of a Faculty Mentor.
Exhibition proposals are evaluated by the Kimmel Windows Steering Committee based on their merit and contribution to the presentation of thoughtful and/or thought-provoking ideas that appropriately represent the vast diversity and caliber of academic research across NYU.
We are committed to diversity in content and breadth of representation for our exhibition program and its public audiences. As such, projects are chosen that reveal new and innovative exhibit subject-matter and themes.
Strong preference is given to projects that engage students and across departments and schools, presenting a platform for cohesive conversations between and beyond these NYU entities.
Our committee reviews proposals and determines their acceptance. If a project is accepted, we work closely and collaboratively with the organizers to produce the best possible version of the project for our audiences and within our space.
Established in 2003, Kimmel Windows are dedicated to providing visually dynamic and thought-provoking exhibitions organized by NYU graduate students, faculty, departments and programs representing a wide range of scholarly discourse at New York University. Kimmel Windows are free and open to the public.

The Art in Public Places initiative was established to consider spaces around the University where public art may be displayed; compose a policy concerning public art at NYU; make recommendations regarding the Mercer construction project and the decentralized nature of art and public spaces at NYU; evaluate the benefit of NYU's commissioning public art; and draft a brief statement stating why public art is an important cause and is beneficial to a person’s learning environment and general sense of wellbeing. This group is chaired by Edward Sullivan, Professor of Art History at the Institute of Fine Arts and Provostial Fellow for the Arts.
