Tim B. Wride joined the staff at the Norton Museum of Art in 2011. Since that time he has mounted fifteen exhibitions including Outside/In: Florida Photographers Face-to-Face with the Permanent Collection, Clubs, Joints, and Honky-Tonks: Photographers experience the Music World, to name a few. Mr. Wride also coordinated the Norton installations for Elegant Enigmas. Since his arrival he has grown the collection by more than 2000 objects and has commissioned 8 artists to create works specifically for the museum.

Prior to joining the Norton Museum, Tim was the founding director of a non-profit foundation that provided cash grants to artist and was a Curator in the Department of Photographs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for 14 years. During his tenure at LACMA, he curated more than 25 permanent collection focus exhibitions as well as larger survey and monographic exhibitions including P.L.A.N.: Photography Los Angeles Now.

As an independent, Wride curated the exhibition, Street Sight, which was the first examination of the unique hybrid of Street Photography in Southern California; and later received a grant to curate Sight Specific: LACPS and the Politics of Community which was presented at the University of Southern California as part of the J. Paul Getty Foundation’s regional initiative to document previously unexplored areas of the region’s art historical influences.

Wride will look at anything in front of him. Be warned, however, he will also tell you what he thinks and will expect you to be as thoughtful and able to express your ideas as he is.
