Our 2019 Juror is Douglas Hyland, retired director of the New Britain Museum of American Art (NBMAA). Dr. Hyland was director of the San Antonio (TX) Museum of Art, the Birmingham (AL) Museum of Art and the Memphis (TN) Brooks Museum of Art. Hyland has a master's and doctorate from the University of Delaware in art history, with an emphasis on American art. He was a Kress fellow in Florence, Italy, then became a Smithsonian fellow in Washington, D.C. Hyland served as curator at the Spencer Museum at University of Kansas. During Hyland's tenure, the NBMAA's holdings more than tripled to over 14,000 items. He has been credited with putting New Britain, CT on the map by attracting major exhibitions and collections. In 2006, the museum undertook a 43,000 square foot expansion; just prior to retiring, Hyland oversaw another expansion adding 17,346 square feet, seven new galleries, three new art studios, and a re-installation of the permanent collection.
