Adam Levine Toledo Museum of Art

Toledo’s Museum of Art: Past, Present, and Future.
The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) has appointed a familiar face to the Toledo area arts community, Adam M. Levine has been chosen to step in as the next Edward Drummond and Florence Scott Libbey director of the Museum. Levine returned to TMA May 1st from the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville, Florida, where he was the George W. and Kathleen I. Gibbs director and chief executive officer. While there, Levine raised more than $11 million and increased attendance and membership by 20 percent. Prior to his post at the Cummer Museum, which began in October 2018, Levine served in several roles at TMA since 2013, most recently as deputy director and curator of ancient art.
Levine graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth College, where he majored in anthropology, art history and mathematics & social science. He continued his studies as a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford, where he earned his master’s degree with distinction and D.Phil. in the history of art. He publishes widely and is a frequent presenter on topics ranging from ancient art and interpretive strategies to museum and management practices.
On the personal side, Adam states “I live in Toledo with my fiancée, Brooke, and 7-year old, Chase, who will be a second-grader at Maumee Valley Country Day School. My hobby, alas, is work at this stage in my life, but the most surprising thing to most people seems to be that I was a Golden Gloves boxer and boxed for Oxford while there.”
