Diana Greenwold


Diana Greenwold (Ph.D., 2016) is the Associate Curator of American Art at the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, Maine. Her dissertation, “Crafting New Citizens: Art and Handicraft in New York and Boston Settlement Houses, 1900-1945,” explored the intersection between art and social work in early 20th-century America. In 2013, Greenwold was the Douglass Foundation Fellow in the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her recent projects have included Of Whales in Paint: Rockwell Kent’s Moby Dick and Model Citizens: Art and Identity in Colonial and Federal America. She opened the traveling exhibition, Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, in fall 2020 with an accompanying catalogue. She was thrilled to host her advisor, Margaretta Lovell, for a fascinating lecture about both artists over the summer. Her upcoming projects include an exhibition of Arts and Crafts Pottery and historic Wabanaki baskets. Diana and her family are still enjoying life in Portland, Maine very much.
