Erika Hernandez Lomas


Specialising in large-scale, complex exhibitions presented domestically and internationally, I draw on my24-year museum career to successfully direct projects and lead team members to deliver high quality museum experiences to audiences around the globe. As head registrar at the Field Museum, I led my staff to successfully manage 45,000 square metres of temporary and permanent exhibitions, in addition to overseeing a dozen exhibits touring concurrently.

Fundamental to mysuccess as a collections care professional is concrete collections management, focused onmanagingacquisition processes; fostering meaningful relationships with institutional donors;mitigating collections risk; andmaintaining the accession ledger, exhibition databases, and lender records. My diverse experience enables me to collaborate seamlessly, diplomatically, and sensitively with internal and externalstakeholderswhile maintaining the highest professional standards, meeting best practices, andadheringtomuseum professioncodes of ethics.
