Graham C. Boettcher, PhD, R. Hugh Daniel Director and CEO of the Birmingham Museum of Art

Graham C. Boettcher arrived at the museum in 2006, first serving as The Luce Foundation Curatorial Fellow of American Art and subsequently as The William Cary Hulsey Curator of American Art, chief curator, and deputy director prior to his appointment as director in September of 2017. A native of Bellingham, Washington, Boettcher received his B.A. and Ph.D. from Yale University and an M.A. from the University of Washington.

Among his many exhibitions are The Look of Love: Eye Miniatures from the Skier Collection, which was named to “The Season’s Best Museum Shows” by Architectural Digest in 2012, and Black Like Who?: Exploring Race & Representation (with Dr. Kelli Morgan, 2015), which was named a “Don’t Miss” exhibition by the Wall Street Journal. Recent publications include contributions to the exhibition catalogue Scandinavian Design and the United States, 1890-1980 (2020) and Lover’s Eyes: Eye Miniatures from the Skier Collection (2021).

In March 2020, when the Birmingham Museum of Art closed its doors due to the pandemic, Boettcher launched the “Director’s Cut,” a weekly series of live-streaming tours of the museum’s collection galleries, which was named a recommended “quarantstream” by Good Morning America and ABC News. To date, his virtual tours have garnered more than 43,000 views.
