Duke Hagerty, 2024 Juror

Richard Hagerty was born in 1950 in Durham, NC, at Duke University Hospital, the place for which he is nicknamed “Duke.” Raised in Charleston, Hagerty’s first serious exposure to art came in his youth, when he attended the salons of the museum and education pioneer, Laura Bragg, in her Charleston home. Bragg introduced Hagerty to the work of the famous Flemish artist, Hieronymous Bosch, and the self-taught genius, Henri Rousseau, whom he deeply admired.

Hagerty grew up with his future wife and “muse” Barbara, who joined him at Johns Hopkins University, where he received his undergraduate degree in 1973. The couple married that year, moved to Durham, and he started Duke University Medical School. They began a family and lived in Atlanta during his residency training in plastic surgery at Emory University from 1977 to 1984. He returned to Charleston that summer and entered his father’s practice, which evolved into his own.

Hagerty has also been the focus of numerous solo and group exhibitions at such museums as The Gibbes, Albany, Burroughs-Chapin, and Bascom, and in numerous galleries in Charleston, Atlanta, New York City, Nantucket and elsewhere.

He has a special interest in cleft lip-and-palate surgery and has traveled overseas regularly as a volunteer to train local surgeons in Haiti, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Peru, and China. An ardent environmentalist, he is involved in land conservation in several capacities. Hagerty has been actively engaged in civic service, having served as a City Councilman from 1996 to 1999.
