Since January 2012, the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) has experienced remarkable growth and development, including in our governance. On behalf of GBCA’s already exceptional Board, I am pleased to announce the election of four new directors:
Julia Marciari-Alexander, Executive Director at The Walters Art Museum, previously served as Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs at the San Diego Museum of Art. She spent over a decade at the Yale Center for British Art, where she curated and directed exhibitions and taught many art history courses. Her special areas of scholarship include 17th- and 18th-century French and British art.
Andrew B. Frank, Special Adviser to the President on economic development initiatives at The Johns Hopkins University, works with internal and external partners to develop and implement strategies to strengthen Baltimore City and the neighborhoods surrounding the student campuses. Before joining Johns Hopkins, Frank worked with the City of Baltimore for 15 years, with three years as First Deputy Mayor for neighborhood and economic development.
Amy Cavanaugh Royce, Executive Director of Maryland Art Place, has worked closely with the Board of Trustees, Staff and Program Advisory Committee to more broadly engage the Maryland statewide arts community and to amplify the organization’s programming initiatives. She was formerly Vice President of ARCH Development Corporation in Washington, DC and is most notably known for co-founding the Honfleur Gallery in historic Anacostia. She is an active cellist.
Gregory Tucker, Senior Vice President, Head of Americas Corporate Communications for Aegon/Transamerica, is responsible for leading the communications of Aegon’s largest country unit, which operates under the prominent Transamerica brand. In his more than 25 years as a communications professional, he has held a number of leading communications roles in government, non-profit, the arts as well as financial services. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and is a pianist.
Please join me in welcoming our new Board members!
