Dr. Megan E. O’Neil is Associate Curator in the Art of the Ancient Americas at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art). Her first book, Engaging Ancient Maya Sculpture at Piedras Negras, Guatemala (University of Oklahoma Press 2012), examines how the ancient Maya used sculptures to make contact with the past and how sculptures inspired reception and performance. She has also published on these topics in Res, Ancient Mesoamerica, and the Journal of Visual Culture, and in Striking Images, Iconoclasms Past and Present. Before LACMA, she taught at several universities and worked on curatorial and education projects at the intersections of universities and museums. She also recently published a revised edition of Maya Art and Architecture, co-authored with Mary Miller (Thames and Hudson 2014). In May 2016, she curated an exhibition of Maya ceramic vessels at LACMA.
