Barbara Drake Boehm is the Paul and Jill Ruddock Curator of Medieval Art and The Cloisters of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She became acquainted with the community of Saint George’s during her travels to the Holy Land for the exhibition Jerusalem in the Middle Ages (forthcoming at the Metropolitan in the Fall of 2016), of which she is co-curator with Melanie Holcomb.

Dr. Boehm’s research focuses on the intersection of creativity and faith. Her exhibitions for the Metropolitan include Prague: The Crown of Bohemia; Choirs of Angels: Painting in Italian Choir Books, 1300-1500; Enamels of Limoges, and Prayer Book for a Queen: The Hours of Jeanne d’Evreux. With Dr. Holcomb, she was curator of the focus exhibition series Medieval Jewish Art in Context. Beyond the Met, she contributed to Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics and Devotion in Medieval Europe (Cleveland, Baltimore, London).

A graduate of Wellesley College, Dr. Boehm received her Ph.D from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. She serves on the Vestry of the Episcopal Church of Saint James, Upper Montclair, New Jersey.
