During her graduate study, she served as library assistant at the George Eastman House and assistant to the archivist at the Keith Haring Foundation in New York.
Ms. O’Dell is overseeing and cataloguing the MFA’s growing photography collection and making recommendations for conservation and storage. As Curatorial Administrator, she assists with the collection as a whole and all exhibitions.
During her previous seven-year tenure at the MFA, Ms. O’Dell was a go-to person in the curatorial department. She was involved with more than 50 exhibitions and curated four, including Changing Identities: The Len Prince Photographs of Jessie Mann and On the Road:Photographs Across America. She now adds the Harold Edgerton show to her list of credits.
