The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has named Cody Hartley as its new director. Hartley has worked with the museum since 2013 and has served as director of curatorial affairs and senior director of collections and interpretation.
Roxanne Decyk, chair of the museum’s board of trustees, said in a statement, “It was important to us not just to have someone who is a strong leader in the cultural sector, but a person who really understands the heart of the O’Keeffe. Cody is a true visionary, and I know he’s going to push the museum in bold directions.”
Aside from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Hartley has worked with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts; and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in California. He said in a release, “I feel lucky to work with such a dynamic, talented team, and to serve the communities of Santa Fe and Abiquiú. Georgia O’Keeffe’s legacy touches many lives, and working to advance that is a dream come true.”
