Richard Selden covers the arts for The Georgetowner and has written freelance arts and travel features for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune and other publications. Earlier, he was marketing director of the Peabody Institute, the music school of Johns Hopkins University, and, before that, ran continuing education at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

With a B.A. in the history of art from Yale and a master’s degree in tourism management from the New School, Richard has advised numerous cultural organizations, primarily in New York City and his home state of Connecticut. In his 20s, he led more than 100 motorcoach tours throughout the eastern U.S. and Canada. He finds himself surprisingly at home planning and leading Smithsonian Associates trips more than 30 years later.

After 13 years residing in Baltimore’s Mount Vernon neighborhood, he now lives in New London, Connecticut, a former whaling port second only to New Bedford, Massachusetts.
