Haynes will start at the museum in October. As curator, she will help the museum’s contemporary art program with exhibits, presentations and publications.

“We are delighted to welcome Lauren to the museum this fall,” said Margi Conrads, director of curatorial affairs for Crystal Bridges. “She brings an acute eye and extensive experience, a hallmark of which has been innovative presentations and working with artists and collectors.”

Haynes has been with the Studio Museum in Harlem since 2006 where she is currently the associate curator of the permanent collection. Haynes earned a bachelor’s in art history from Oberlin College, and her specialty is African American modern and contemporary art.

“I have closely watched all of the work being done there since the Museum’s founding and I look forward to helping grow the contemporary art program,” Haynes said. “Crystal Bridges and the Studio Museum share a commitment to bringing innovative and challenging artworks and exhibitions to broad and diverse audiences. I can’t wait to bring the perspective I’ve developed over the past ten years to Crystal Bridges and the northwest Arkansas community.”
