IMA Promotes Haigh to COO

Posted: Updated:

The Indianapolis Museum of Art has promoted Kathryn Haigh to chief operating officer. She will continue to manage the museum's art collection, exhibitions, conservation laboratories, historic sites, security and facilities operations, while playing a leading role in developing and implementing a new 30-year master plan for the institution. 

Haigh joined the IMA in 2007 after spending 13 years at the Cincinnati Art Museum. In 2010, she was promoted to deputy director for collections and exhibitions. In this role, her responsibilities were enhanced to include logistical oversight of the exhibitions program, as well as management of art registration, photography and research departments. Haigh was a member of the team that implemented the Gloria exhibition in the U.S. Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011, and worked with colleagues to transition the Miller House and Garden in Columbus, from private residence to historic site. In 2013, she was promoted to deputy director for collections, exhibitions and facilities management.

Currently, Haigh is working with staff to draft the IMA’s first-ever Historic Preservation Policy and Comprehensive Facilities Maintenance Plan. With spacious galleries, three theaters and a historic estate surrounded by 152-acres of gardens and parkland, the IMA’s diverse spaces inspire programming that excites and engages a broad public.
