HANCOCK, MASS.- The Board of Trustees of Hancock Shaker Village announced today that Nathaniel Silver has been appointed Executive Director and CEO, following a 4-month search and a unanimous decision by the Board. Silver comes to Hancock Shaker Village from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, where he worked for eight years and serves as the William and Lia Poorvu Curator of the Collection and Division Head, overseeing collections, conservation, publications and archives. Silver will assume his new role on September 19.

At the Gardner, Silver was instrumental in shaping and fulfilling the institution’s strategic plan. He played a key role in making the collection accessible to the widest possible audience and supervised content creation for the museum-wide digitization project. Silver charted new directions in the exhibition program, curating twelve exhibitions including the critically acclaimed Titian: Women, Myth & Power (August 2021 – January 2022), Boston’s Apollo: Thomas McKeller & John Singer Sargent (February – October 2020) including a new commission from contemporary artist Lorraine O’Grady, and Botticelli: Heroines + Heroes (February – May 2019). This program also included ten publications authored, edited, or co-edited by him.

Before joining the Gardner Museum, Silver worked for three years at The Frick Collection in New York City where his exhibition Piero della Francesca in America earned international recognition. He has also served as the Edmond J. Safra Research Associate at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and held fellowships at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice. Silver holds a Ph.D. and an MA from the University of London.

“We are very pleased to appoint Nathaniel Silver as the next Executive Director of Hancock Shaker Village,” said Diane Eshleman, Chairman of the Board. “He will be an inspirational leader who has curated marvelous exhibitions at the Gardner and is coming to the Village during an exciting time when our own dynamic programming is gaining momentum. We are incredibly grateful to Jennifer Trainer Thompson for the phenomenal impact she has had at the Village during her tenure and the wonderful legacy she leaves for us. We are pleased that she will be assisting with a smooth transition to the new Director.”

“I am thrilled to join Hancock Shaker Village at such an exciting time. Like the Gardner, the Village is a work of art in its entirety with a deep commitment to serving its community and resulted from the vision of a woman ahead of her time,” said Nat Silver. “The Shakers left a uniquely American legacy of equity and sustainability that resonates profoundly today and inspires every aspect of the Village’s dynamic public program. I look forward to working with the staff, to building on these incredible successes, and to shaping a vibrant future together.”

Current Executive Director, Jennifer Trainer Thompson, will remain in the position through September 16, 2022.
