George Bolge holds a Master of Arts degree from the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University with a Ma­jor in Greek and Roman Archeology and a Minor in Museum Studies and Conservation. Bolge is also a Fellow of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, holds an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Nova University and is the recipient of the Butler Institute of American Art Medal for distinguished contributions to American Visual Arts.

While Executive Director of the Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art, he expanded the collection, achieved American Association of Museum accreditation, and led a funding drive for the construction of a new museum facility designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes. As Executive Director of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Mr. Bolge developed innovative outreach programs, upgraded the Museum's exhibition schedule, grew the permanent collection and achieved accreditation for the Museum by the American Association of Museums. In 1999, with his Board's commitment, Bolge raised the funds to construct a 44,000-square-foot museum facility in Mizner Park located in downtown Boca Raton.
He has brought many important exhibitions to the state of Florida, including retrospective exhibitions of the work of Ansel Adams and Norman Rockwell, the graphic work of Renoir, and major exhibitions of the works of Edward Hopper, Alice Neel and Andrew Wyeth. Bolge recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Florida Art Museum Director's Association.

George Bolge.
George Bolge, who recently retired as executive director of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, has been named chief executive officer of the Museum of Florida Art in DeLand.
Bolge served as director of the Boca museum for 16 years, and was critical in winning funding for the museum's new Mizner Park home, which opened in 2001. Before coming to Boca, Bolge was director for 18 years of the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, where he also led the effort for a new building to house the museum's collections.
The Museum of Florida Art was founded 60 years ago as the DeLand Children's Museum before the focus was switched to visual art. The DeLand Museum of Art became the Museum of Florida Art in 2006 to better acknowledge the fact that the organization had been working to promote Florida artists and their works since the 1990s.
Bolge holds a master's degree from New York University's Institute of Fine Arts, where he majored in Greek and Roman archaeology and minored in museum studies. He is a Vietnam War veteran and a fellow of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
He begins his new job in DeLand in November, museum officials said.

The Museum of Art has grown up, thanks to the brilliant leadership and connoisseur's eye of its director for the last two years, George Bolge ("A glimpse into the Latin heart," Oct. 9).

But when assessing his vision for the museum, I couldn't help but think back to a 2009 interview I conducted with George Bolge, the Boca Museum's director at the time, for a different publication. Bolge told me, "I don't think, 'Who are we going to entertain?' as much as 'Can we do really good shows that have a lasting impact?
