Please join us in welcoming Audrey to the DAH. We are thrilled to not only have a Manager of Research Collections again but to have one with the experience and positive outlook that Audrey brings.
Hailing from a small town in northwest Iowa, Audrey has lived in New York City for nearly 15 years. During the last year, she was a Program Officer for the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs working with the non-profits that bring culture to the city’s five boroughs. Prior to that she spent some time in far west Texas working in Marfa with a contemporary art space, Ballroom Marfa. She joined the staff of Exit Art in 2006 on an IMLS archive project to preserve the 30-year history of the alternative art space and transitioned into various archive and administrative rolls through the sunset of Exit Art in 2012, after which she helped NYU fund the processing of the Exit Art archive at Fales Library where the material is now available to researchers. From 2004-2006 she was the Digital Archivist at Pentagram Design and spent the early years of her career at the Museum of Modern Art Library. Audrey has a B.A. in Art from University of Northern Iowa and an M.S. in Information Science from Pratt Institute of Art. Audrey lives in Astoria, Queens with her husband.
