Greg Cook is an arts reporter and critic for WBUR.org and The Providence Phoenix. His writing has also appeared in The Boston Phoenix, The Boston Globe, Art New England, Juxtapoz Magazine, Art & Antiques, PoetryFoundation.org and several newspapers in suburban Boston. He is the founder of The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research, which won a 2009 Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant.
Cook is a leader in fostering art making in the New England. He oversees the New England Art Awards, an annual open-source, community project to honor art made in the region. He organizes the “Quiet, Please” arts and cultures talks at the Malden Public Library. And his writings sparked a community effort that got Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts to relaunch its Maud Morgan Prize for local women artists in 2011 after the museum neglected to award it for five years.
Cook teaches at Montserrat College of Art. His own pictures have appeared in fancy publications like Nickelodeon magazine, Publishers Weekly and The Believer, and have received honorable mentions in the 2006 and ’07 editions of “The Best American Comics.” He’s exhibited his artwork in Italy, France, Canada, Abu Dhabi, the United States, and the bathrooms of Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.
