Welcome New Director

The museum’s staff and boards look forward to warmly welcoming Juliette Bianco as incoming Director starting September 1. Juliette succeeds Nancy Doll, who steps down on July 31 after 22 years of dedicated and successful service.

Juliette comes to UNCG from the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, her undergraduate alma mater, where she has served in various leadership capacities, including Deputy Director since 2013. With 25 years of experience as an art museum professional, she is well prepared to lead the Weatherspoon as it expands its institutional and cultural impact regionally, nationally, and globally. Fittingly, Juliette’s scholarly interests focus on transformational leadership in higher education and university museums as centers of innovative teaching and learning and hubs for exploring diversity, creative partnerships, and the benefits of strategic planning.

Juliette holds a master’s degree in art history from the University of Chicago and is a graduate of the Getty Leadership Institute’s residence program for museum administrators. She completed the Doctor of Education degree at Northeastern University in 2020.
