Newly Appointed Museum of Art Director: Mark A. Magleby

Mark Magleby, 2011

Mark A. Magleby is the director of the Museum of Art at BYU. His duties will officially begin on January 1, 2012. Previous to his appointment, Magleby taught as an assistant professor of art history at BYU.

Magleby's long tenured background with BYU began in his undergrad years when he graduated from in 1989 with a bachelor's degree in art history. He later received a master's and doctorate degree from Ohio State University in 1992 and 2009, respectively. Before working at BYU, Magleby was an art history faculty member at both Ohio State University and Denison University.

Magleby taught courses in twentieth-century and contemporary art and architecture, as well as in eighteen-century European art, architecture and garden history. His research interests include exoticism – Chinoiserie and Turquerie styles – in Georgian Britain, English country estates and portraiture of the same era, and the arts and cultural practices attending the English tradition of a Grand Tour to Italy.

Magleby’s scholarship has focused on the influential gardens of Stourhead in the United Kingdom, as well as the creation of a database of English garden history. He co-authored with Leslie Norris the book Kershisnik: Painting from Life. Magleby’s prior work with the museum includes co-curating the exhibition Allegories of Empire as well as assisting with exhibition-related symposia involving internationally recognized scholars. However, his work has not only involved prominent professionals. Magleby collaborated with students and HBLL library personnel in recent years to create a searchable database of gardeners, masons, carpenters and other craftspeople involved in eighteenth-century garden making. He has mentored art history students in England and supervised three study abroad programs.
