My name is Hadia Shaikh and I am a Pakistani-American who is an avid museum visitor and an art fanatic. I hold a BA in Art History and an MA and graduate certificate in Museum Studies.
Growing up in Indiana, visiting museums and making art were my favorite hobbies. It is no surprise that this transitioned into my career. I love museums and I am particularly interested in large institutions. For as long as I can remember, I've enjoyed thematic exhibits and working with artists. I love Islamic, contemporary, and modern art and minimalist design.
I've had amazing opportunities where I studied abroad in Madrid and Barcelona, Spain and taken graduate level courses in Paris, France at Parsons Paris - The New School with students in the History of Design and Curatorial Studies program.
In my free time, I enjoy dressing up and exploring new restaurants with my close ones wherever I may be. Even on the tiresome long days, there is nothing like a refreshing and genuine conversation that can make your heart whole.
My goals and dreams are endless but they include visiting over 100 museums, exploring the west coast, running marathons, traveling, getting married, living in a gorgeous city with scenic views, and working at my dream job, God willing. I'm working hard to make it all come true! Follow me on my art and museum adventures through my Instagram handle: @khaishbyh.
