Born and raised in southern California, Julie Delliquanti's background is in museum education and arts administration. After earning her graduate degree at Boston University, she worked in public programs and community engagement at the Peabody Essex Museum (Salem, Mass.), Minneapolis Institute of Art (Minneapolis, Minn.), Greater Minnesota Housing Fund (St. Paul, Minn.) and High Museum of Art (Atlanta); as curator and director of exhibitions at Emory University; and as executive director of Atlanta Contemporary (Atlanta). Most recently, Julie was director of education and interpretation at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University.
Julie has always considered herself a radical advocate for all audiences. She believes that providing opportunities to engage with contemporary art opens up possibilities for exchange between people around the ideas that matter to them. She looks forward to deepening connections with artists and audiences and continuing to strengthen Oklahoma Contemporary’s commitment to innovative exhibitions and public programs and reputation as a leader for bold ideas and experimentation.
