Barnes Foundation Appoints Shelley Bernstein as Deputy Director for Digital Initiatives and Chief Experience Officer

Thom Collins, Executive Director and President of the Barnes Foundation, announced the appointment of Shelley Bernstein as Deputy Director for Digital Initiatives and Chief Experience Officer. Ms. Bernstein joins the Barnes Foundation following 17 years at the Brooklyn Museum, where she most recently held the position of Vice Director of Digital Engagement & Technology. She will begin working at the Barnes in May 2016. The newly created position of Deputy Director for Digital Initiatives and Chief Experience Officer—a hybrid role that is currently unique in the field—was designed to embed visitor-centered thinking into every aspect of the Barnes Foundation. In this role, Bernstein will lead a visitor experience team and develop both onsite and online points of engagement aimed at deepening and enhancing the visitor experience before, during and after their visit to the Barnes. An expert in engaging the public through technology, Bernstein will collaborate across departments to develop new ways for visitors to engage with the Foundation and create meaningful, long-term relationships with the Barnes. These initiatives will also be aimed at cultivating new audiences and making the Foundation's exceptional collections, exhibitions, programs, and resources broadly accessible. Bernstein will lead the creative and strategic development of the Barnes Foundation's online presence in support of its educational mission. She will establish the formation of a web and digital production department which will lead the redesign of the Barnes's digital content and the development of new digital tools geared toward deeply engaging audiences. Her appointment follows the recent hires of Metropolitan Museum of Art veteran Nina McNeely Diefenbach as Deputy Director for Advancement, Sylvie Patry—previously Chief Curator of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Paintings at the Musée d'Orsay—as Deputy Director for Collections and Exhibitions and Gund Family Chief Curator, and Dr. Martha Lucy as Deputy Director for Education & Public Programs and Curator.
