Adam D. Weinberg is an art museum curator and director.[1]

Adam D. Weinberg became the Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art in October 1, 2003.[2] He is also on the board of trustees of the museum. Before that Weinberg was the Mary Stripp and R. Crosby Kemper Director of the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy, Andover, from 1999 until 2003.

During the 1980s, Weinberg worked at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota where he served as Director of Education and Assistant Curator. He joined the Whitney in 1989 initially as Director of the Whitney branch at the Equitable Center at 52nd and Seventh Avenue. Weinberg was then appointed to the office of artistic and program director of the venerable American Center France in Paris in 1991.[3] Many of the patrons considered his departure over organizational politics a loss to the institution. The Whitney reappointed him as Curator of the Permanent Collection in 1993 and was made Senior Curator there in 1998.[4]

He holds a BA from Brandeis University[5] and a master's degree from the Visual Studies Workshop, the State University of New York at Buffalo.
