Chief Advancement Officer at Mural Arts Philadelphia, USA
With over twenty years of experience in the art world, Genny Boccardo-Dubey has worked in both the private and public sector. She joined Mural Arts in early 2021 as Chief Advancement Officer, overseeing the strategy and management of revenue sources for the organization.
Genny has worked in development and management roles at the Tate in London, the Orange County Museum of Art in California, and at the Cleveland Museum of Art in Ohio. She founded and ran a successful contemporary art gallery in Cleveland, Ohio for eight years. Most recently she was Deputy Director at Laguna Art Museum where she worked closely with the Executive Director and Board of Trustees to ensure alignment of goals and budgets, growth of art education programs to underserved communities, and access to art for all. She holds a B.A. in international relations from the University of San Diego, an M.B.A. in international business and marketing from the University of San Francisco, and an M.A. in Art History and Museum Studies from Case Western Reserve University, a program closely associated with the Cleveland Museum of Art. In 2017 Genny completed the Getty Leadership Institute program (recently renamed the Museum Leadership Institute).
For over 35 years, Mural Arts has united artists and communities through a collaborative process, rooted in the traditions of mural-making, to create art that transforms public spaces and individual lives. Mural Arts engages communities in 50–100 public art projects each year, and maintains its growing collection through a restoration initiative. Our core program areas—Art Education, Restorative Justice, and Porch Light—yield unique, project-based learning opportunities for thousands of youth and adults.
Each year, 15,000 residents and visitors tour Mural Arts’ outdoor art gallery, which has become part of the city’s civic landscape and a source of pride and inspiration, earning Philadelphia international recognition as the “City of Murals.”
