Boscobel Executive Director announces retirement
Acting Executive Director Jennifer Carlquist.


GARRISON, NY.- Steven Miller, Executive Director of Boscobel House and Gardens in Garrison, New York has announced his retirement.

The announcement comes at an exciting time for Miller, who has been accepted as a Visiting Scholar at The American Academy in Rome. During his study term in Rome, Miller will complete a book about how museums remove collections, a practice referred to in the profession as “deaccessioning.” Wiley-Blackwell also recently released Miller’s museum studies textbook, The Anatomy of a Museum: An Insider’s Text.

Boscobel’s Board of Trustees has appointed Boscobel Curator Jennifer Carlquist as Acting Executive Director, effective immediately. Since joining Boscobel as Curator in 2015, Carlquist has spearheaded innovative and widely attended exhibitions including Hudson Hewn: New York Furniture Now and Make-Do's: Curiously Repaired Antiques. Prior to joining Boscobel's staff, she served in curatorial and fundraising roles at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Weisman Art Museum, and Glensheen Historic Estate; and completed a fellowship at Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library.

Carlquist is a 20-year museum professional and a specialist in historic interiors and their contents. She teaches as an Adjunct Professor at SUNY New Paltz and has lectured for design-related museums and programs across the country, including the Victorian Society Summer Schools, the New York School of Interior Design, Parsons School for Design, and Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library. She holds a B.F.A. in Art History from the University of Minnesota, an M.A. from the Parsons School for Design/Cooper-Hewitt Program in the History of Design and Curatorial Studies, and a certificate in Non-Profit Management. She is active in many professional organizations, including the American Friends of Attingham and the Decorative Arts Trust.

Barnabas McHenry, President of Boscobel’s Board of Trustees says, “We thank Steven Miller for his many important contributions to Boscobel, and are thrilled to have a qualified and esteemed member of staff in place to take the baton at this juncture. Jennifer Carlquist's knowledge of Boscobel and its collection is second to none.”
