NEW YORK, NY.- At the March 16, 2010, meeting of the Board of Trustees of the American Federation of Arts (AFA), Thomas P. Campbell was elected a trustee. “The AFA has enjoyed a long and extremely fruitful relationship with The Metropolitan Museum of Art,” said AFA Director George G. King, “and we are delighted that Tom will be carrying on the tradition of representing the Metropolitan on the AFA Board. I know that with his talent and wisdom he will be a great asset in assisting the AFA with carrying out its mission.” The AFA Board is the first board Mr. Campbell has joined since assuming the directorship of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Named Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in January 2009, Mr. Campbell previously was Curator in the Metropolitan Museum’s Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, during which time he conceived and organized the major exhibitions Tapestry in the Renaissance: Art and Magnificence (2002) and Tapestry in the Baroque: Threads of Splendor (2007), both of which received widespread acclaim. The 2002 exhibition was named "Exhibition of the Year" by Apollo magazine, and its catalogue won the 2003 Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Award for a distinguished exhibition catalogue in the history of art.

Mr. Campbell has lectured and taught extensively on European court patronage and the relation of tapestries to the other arts in the U.S. and abroad and has also published extensively on the subject of historic European textiles and their relationship to other art forms of their periods. His most recent book is Henry VIII and the Art of Majesty: Tapestries at the Tudor Court (2007), and his articles have appeared in leading scholarly journals. He has been the recipient of awards and fellowships, including the 2003 Iris Foundation Award for a scholar in mid-career deserving of recognition for outstanding contributions to the study of the decorative arts.

Mr. Campbell was born in Singapore and raised in Cambridge, England. He received his B.A. in literature from the University of Oxford; a Diploma from Christie's Fine and Decorative Arts course in London; and an M.A. and Ph.D from the Courtauld Institute of Art.
