The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum announced Tuesday that Cybele Maylone has been appointed executive director of the museum.

She will succeed Alyson Baker, who stepped down from the position in December 2017.

Maylone comes to The Aldrich from UrbanGlass in New York City where she has served as executive director since 2013.

During her tenure there, Maylone worked closely with a number of artists who have also presented solo exhibitions at The Aldrich.

Maylone will assume the position at The Aldrich in mid-September 2018.

"The Aldrich unites two things that I revere in institutions: critical support to artists to create and present new work, and opportunities for the public to connect with contemporary art and ideas,” she said.  "I am deeply honored to be joining the Museum at such an exciting moment, and to be working closely with the staff, the Trustees, and the extended Aldrich Museum family as we launch a new phase in the life of this marvelous place.”
