Vice President of Philanthropy
Boston Arts Academy Foundation
Grace joined Boston Arts Academy Foundation in August 2021. She has a decade of experience in development, fundraising, client relations, and donor engagement in the art world, including the Post-War & Contemporary Art department at Christie’s auction house. Most recently, Grace led Leadership Giving and Engagement at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.
She grew up in Northeastern Florida, but after falling in love with the subject of art history in high school, Grace found her way to Williams College (Williamstown, MA), where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Art History and Psychology. She went on to receive her master’s degree in History of Art and the Art Market: Modern and Contemporary Art from Christie’s Education in New York City.
Grace is excited to support the students and mission of Boston Arts Academy. She lives in the North End of Boston, and loves playing tennis with her Central Massachusetts league just as much as staying home with her pet bunny, Ruth.
