Cynthia Kurtz

Marketing & Communications Manager
540-687-6542 ext. 13

Cynthia joined the NSLM in the spring of 2021 having previously worked as an intern at the Museum in 2019. She has a passion for art and sport, making the NSLM the perfect place for her to bring her talents to the table and support a mission she feels strongly about. In addition to her skills in marketing, social media management, and graphic design, Cynthia boasts nearly 20 years of experience in the saddle.

When not at work, Cynthia can most likely be found with her beloved horse, Saint, either chasing cows or enjoying the ample trail riding opportunities here in Northern Virginia.

She received her M.A. in Museum Studies from The George Washington University in Washington, DC, and her B.A. from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. She is responsible for marketing, social media, and graphic design to support the entire NSLM. Her most recent publication, "Showing True Colors: Digitization and the Importance of Accurate Color Capture" in The State of Museum Digital Practice in 2019 reflects her cross-disciplinary approach to providing the best experience for museum and library patrons.
