12.3.1945 Born in Dallas Texas

Power Boothe is an artist, educator and arts administrator. He is currently the Dean of the Hartford Art School (2001 to the present) and a tenured professor in painting. Since 2001, the Art School has increased its endowments, engaged in a successful multi-million dollar capital campaign that led to the construction of the Renée Samuels Center, and renewed its NASAD accreditation. In addition, it has established three innovative degree programs: a BFA in Media Arts, a low-residency MFA in Illustration, and a low-residency MFA in Photography.

Boothe grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. He received a BA from Colorado College and an Honorary Doctor of Arts from Colorado College. Boothe has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in New York. His paintings and prints are represented in many public and private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. Boothe has received individual grants, including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, a Pollock/Krasner Foundation Fellowship, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.

Boothe also is known for his accomplishments as a set designer for theater, dance and video. He has designed sets for Obie Award-winning productions with directors, choreographers and composers, including Richard Foreman, Lee Bruer, David Gordon, Doug Varone, and Philip Glass. He has been the co-recipient of numerous collaborative grants, including NEA Inter-Arts Grants, New York State Council Grants, and a Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Grant. He received a Bessie Award for set design, a Film/Video Arts Foundation Award for film, and several NY Art Matters Grants for his theater productions.

Prior to his position as Dean, he served as Director of the School of Art at Ohio University (1998-2001). While serving as the Co-Director of the Mount Royal Graduate School at the Maryland Institute College of Art (1993-1998), he received the Maryland Institute Trustees Award for Teaching Excellence. Boothe was appointed Lecturer in the Humanities at Princeton University (1988-1994), served as Foundation Instructor at the School of Visual Arts (1977-1988), and has been invited to lecture at many colleges and universities nationally.
