Lauren Nye_HeadShot_BWLauren Nye is Director of Exhibitions at the Susquehanna Art Museum (SAM) in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Prior, she served as Art Program Director at Gallery360 and as Gallery Manager at Isadore Gallery, both in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Nye graduated from Millersville University with concentrations in art history and sculpture, with experience in bronze foundry metalworking. She was selected as artist-in-residence for the Millersville sculpture studio and the Nyholm Foundation in Denmark. She has curated exhibitions at a variety of venues for nine years and assisted in sculpture installations both nationally and internationally. Additionally, she served as a juror and/or judge for exhibitions at regional arts organizations such as the York Art Association, Berks Art Council, Whitaker Center, and Millersville University where she was honored to be the first alumni juror in exhibition history.

Her interest in public art sparked the beginning of the SAM mural project, and she successfully coordinated the installation of an ambitious 1,400 sq. ft. outdoor mural in the Midtown district of Harrisburg. Nye’s speaking engagements include the PA Museums Conference at the State Museum of Pennsylvania, the Impact Arts Conference panel on the challenges of opening a successful art space, and PechaKucha Harrisburg on the role of arts in urban beautification.
