The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is proud to announce the arrival of two new additions to its leadership, Katrina Stacy, Curator of Education and Interpretation, and Liz Neely, Curator of Digital Experience. The new hires will cultivate fresh ways to engage growing audiences.

“Katrina and Liz bring diverse experiences and strengths to the Museum,” says Robert A. Kret, Director of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. “We are thrilled to have them join our team, and help push our public interaction in new directions.”

Katrina Stacy arrives from the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts, where she was the Associate Curator of Education. In that role, Stacy led public programs and events with over 28,000 participants annually, and a tour program serving more than 14,000 visitors each year. She holds an MA in Art Education, with an emphasis on Museum Education, from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a BA from the University of Massachusetts, where she double-majored in Studio Art and Anthropology. She is a strong advocate for diverse audiences, and understands the importance of producing uniquely engaging guest experiences. In her role at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Stacy will oversee interpretation initiatives, public programs, and education activities.

As the curator of digital experience, Liz Neely will lead the development of the Museum’s digital infrastructure and audience experiences across media platforms. She will make technology key to developing exhibitions and public programs. Neely received her MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, and has a dual BA from Mundelein College in Spanish and History. Neely most recently worked as Senior Director of Integrated Content at the American Alliance of Museums in Washington, D.C., where she led the organization’s digital strategy content and innovations. Neely was also an adjunct professor at John Hopkins University, where she taught about museums in the digital age. Additionally, she has held curatorial and directorial positions at the Harwood Museum of Art at the University of New Mexico, and at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Katrina Stacy and Liz Neely begin their roles at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum this week.
