Bio:

Leslie Cozzi, FAAR’18, is the Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings & Photographs at The Baltimore Museum of Art, where she is responsible for the museum’s post-1900 collection of works on paper. She was a 2017-2018 Rome Prize Winner at the American Academy in Rome. Previously, she served as the curatorial associate at the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts at the Hammer Museum. In that capacity, she oversaw research and daily management of various collections the museum oversees, including the Armand Hammer Permanent Collection, the Franklin D.

In 2012, Leslie completed her Ph.D. in contemporary art history at the University of Virginia under the supervision of Dr. Howard Singerman. Her dissertation, “Protagonismo e non: Mirella Bentivoglio, Carla Accardi, Carla Lonzi, and the Art of Italian Feminism in the 1960s and 1970s,” was awarded a 2010-2011 Fulbright Fellowship as well as the Zora Neale Hurston essay prize by the University of Virginia’s Women and Gender Studies program. Leslie received her B.A. from Yale University in 2003, where she was awarded the A. Conger Goodyear Senior Essay Prize.
