Danielle Newton has been appointed as Glenstone Museum’s new Director of Visitor Services.
Founded with the mission to seamlessly integrate art, architecture, and landscape, Glenstone is an art museum located on over 300 acres of rolling hills and unspoiled woodland. The museum, opened in 2006 and expanded in 2018, offers nearly 60,000 square feet of exhibition space to showcase its collection of more than 1300 works by 200 contemporary artists. With its expansion, Glenstone now has the ability to welcome over 100,000 visitors each year, and admission is always free. Guided by the personal vision of its founders, Glenstone assembles post-World War II artworks of the highest quality that trace the greatest historical shifts in the way we experience and understand art of the 20th and 21st centuries. These works are presented in a series of refined indoor and outdoor spaces designed to facilitate meaningful encounters for our visitors.
Glenstone was in the search for a Director of Visitor Services that could lead all visitor facing operations to ensure a seamless visitor experience. Society assisted Glenstone in the nationwide search, focused on individuals in the museum and luxury hospitality space.
Danielle Newton has over 15 years of experience in the museum space. She started at the Miami Children’s Museum and most recently she served as the Vice President of Visitor Services at The National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
“I’m honored to be chosen to lead the new Visitor Services department at Glenstone Museum. Glenstone’s combination of art, architecture and landscape has created a unique and special environment and culture that I’m excited to join. I look forward to working with the Visitor Experience and Food & Beverage teams and learning how I can support them and the growth of the new department. Thank you to Chris and Jomar for their help and guidance through the hiring process. Working with Society was a pleasure.”
We wish Danielle the best of success in her new role.
