Elaine Gustafson is the Curator of Collections at the Weatherspoon Art Museum on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where her areas of interest include photography and modern American art. Upon her arrival in June 2009, she served as production manager for the museum’s first significant catalogue on its collection. More recent projects include overseeing the renovation of the Weatherspoon’s storage vault, and strengthening the museum’s collection of photography. In January 2017, she organized Lucinda Devlin: Sightlines, the first retrospective for this significant American photographer.

Elaine also works directly with UNCG faculty and students to develop exhibitions related to upcoming course curricula.
