Benjamin Krevolin joined Bard Graduate Center as the Chief Advancement Officer in January 2016. He came to BGC from Vassar College where he served as Director of Leadership Gifts. During his time at Vassar, he had the opportunity to work with an exceptional team of volunteers and colleagues on a $430 Million campaign, successfully soliciting support for scholarships, faculty research, capital projects, and operations. Krevolin also worked with Vassar’s Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, strengthening volunteer support and financial resources as well as expanding the permanent collection through gifts of art.

From 2003 to 2011 Krevolin served as President of the Dutchess County Arts Council (now Arts Mid-Hudson), a leading local arts agency serving the Mid-Hudson Valley. During his time at the Arts Council, he was an advocate for the arts in the region, spearheading a united arts fund, providing grants and technical support to communities and organizations, developing regional initiatives, and leading advocacy efforts in Albany and Washington DC. Before that, Krevolin worked with a number of nonprofit cultural organizations including Theatre for a New Audience, New York Stage & Film, and the Byrd Hoffman Foundation.

As a freelance theater artist, Benjamin worked on the premieres of plays and musicals in New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Stockholm including the Tony-Award winning productions of Titanic and The Lion King; the two-part stage adaptation of John Irving’s novel The Cider House Rules; and the Swedish premiere of Arthur Miller’s The Last Yankee at the Royal Theater of Sweden. Benjamin developed original works including a stage adaptation of Paul Monette’s award-winning autobiography Becoming a Man: Half a Life Story and an adaptation of Hamlet for the New York Deaf Theater.

Krevolin received a BA from Vassar College and went on to receive a post-graduate diploma from the Juilliard School of Drama. He has published articles in Modern Magazine and the Huffington Post and wrote an arts column for the Poughkeepsie Journal.
