BOSTON, MASS.- Tufts University has named curator Dina Deitsch as its new director and chief curator of university art galleries, overseeing operations at the Tufts University Art Gallery on the Medford/Somerville campus and the exhibition spaces at the Boston campus of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University (SMFA at Tufts).

Deitsch will be a key contributor in developing the university's relationship with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston through collaborative exhibitions planning and public programming, while helping to inaugurate a new art-centered era at the university.

She will also oversee the university's art collections to ensure professional stewardship of the works on display and in storage. The permanent art collection at Tufts includes pieces from Auguste Rodin, John Singer Sargent, Louise Nevelson, Helen Frankenthaler, Isamu Nogushi and Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, among others.

"It is with great excitement that we welcome Dina to our community," said Nancy Bauer, dean of the SMFA at Tufts. "Dina's extensive curatorial, scholarly, and administrative experience in both museum and academic settings makes her an ideal choice to lead the Tufts and SMFA galleries and to oversee our new relationship with the Museum of Fine Arts."

Deitsch joins Tufts from the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University, where she was the John R. and Barbara Robinson Family interim director for this past academic year. She is a former faculty member of the SMFA at Tufts in the MFA graduate program, and at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Until 2015 Deitsch worked as curator of contemporary art at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts. At the renowned museum, she organized one-person exhibitions with notable contemporary artists and numerous group exhibitions, including most recently "Walden, revisited."

"I am thrilled to join Tufts and the SMFA at this unprecedented moment. Merging the two galleries in Medford and Boston, each with their own extensive histories of powerful programming, presents an opportunity to rethink the ways in which the university gallery, as a form, can operate in and beyond the campus," says Deitsch. "I look forward to working with faculty, students, and the administrations here and at the Museum of Fine Arts – as well as the Boston community at large – in deepening and strengthening the presence of art throughout the entirety of Tufts University campuses."

Deitsch received a Master of Arts in art history from Williams College, and undertook graduate work at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. Her writing has been featured in Phaidon Press's "Vitamin Ph: New Perspectives in Photography," "Art Papers," "C Magazine," MIT's "Thresholds," and "Art Journal Online," among others.

Deitsch has also held curatorial positions at the Williams College Museum of Art and, very briefly, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She is currently guest curating "Common Exchange," a series of public art performances and installation in and around Cambridge Common in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
