Graham C. Boettcher is Deputy Director and The William Cary Hulsey Curator of American Art at the Birmingham Museum of Art in Alabama, where he has worked since 2006, and was Luce Foundation Curatorial Fellow of American Art until 2008. He was previously a curatorial fellow at the Yale University Art Gallery, and has held research fellowships at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, and the Terra Foundation Summer Residency in Giverny, France. Boettcher recently curated The Look of Love: Eye Miniatures from the Skier Collection (2012), for which he edited and contributed to a major publication by the same name. He is currently working on an exhibition exploring the Viking Revival in American art. Boettcher received his B.A. and Ph.D. from Yale University, and an M.A. from the University of Washington in his home state. He has served as a trustee of the Association of Art Museum Curators since 2010.

The skills I gained through the program had an immediate impact on my daily work and interactions with colleagues, and I continue to experience positive personal and professional growth as a result of the tremendous relevance of the curriculum to our profession.
