Dr. Horace D. Ballard (Pownal, VT) is constantly thinking through the relationship between art, people, and ideas. As a curator, professor, and theologian, Horace ponders the questions of truth, beauty, and being, and their necessary and practical relationship to (in)justice and inclusivity in culture.

A former child actor and professional singer, Horace has worked in the curatorial, engagement, and interpretation departments of the Fralin Museum of Art, at the University of Virginia; the Yale University Art Gallery; the Museum of Art of the Rhode Island School of Design; the Birmingham Museum of Art; and the Williams College Museum of Art.
