Robert W. "Bo" Welch III (born November 30, 1951) is an American production designer, art director, film and television director and occasional actor.
Welch was born in Yardley, Pennsylvania.
Welch worked as a production designer on the Tim Burton films Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice and Batman Returns, as well as on the Barry Sonnenfeld films Men in Black and Wild Wild West, among other films. He made his directorial debut with The Cat in the Hat but it was a critical and commercial disappointment. He has been nominated for four Academy Awards for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, three of them shared with set decorator Cheryl Carasik and another one with J. Michael Riva and Linda DeScenna. The four films are Men in Black, The Birdcage, and A Little Princess with Carasik, and The Color Purple with Riva and DeScenna.
