It’s been over a year since Lauren Haynes joined the Queens Museum as director of Curatorial Affairs and Programs, guiding the overall vision for exhibitions and public programs. Prior to arriving at Queens, her storied art career included posts at the Studio Museum in Harlem (where she claims to have really cut her teeth as a curator), the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. This past April, President Biden appointed Haynes to the Committee for the Preservation of the White House. She and the 12 others on the committee are responsible for establishing policies relating to the museum function of the White House.
