Public Art Fund Appoints Kellie Honeycutt Deputy Director, Daniel S. Palmer Curator

The Public Art Fund in New York announced today the promotion of Kellie Honeycutt to deputy director and Daniel S. Palmer to curator. Honeycutt joined the Public Art Fund as communications director in 2010 and has also served as director of institutional advancement. In her new role, she will help advance the organization’s strategic vision and will oversee fundraising, communications, marketing, and administration.

Palmer came to the Public Art Fund in 2016, following a two-year stint at the Jewish Museum in New York. As associate curator, he organized the exhibitions “Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales” (2019), “Harold Ancart: Subliminal Standard” (2019), and “Tony Oursler: Tear of the Cloud” (2018), among others, and cocurated “Commercial Break” (2017), which displayed digital video and photography by twenty artists across all five boroughs.

“Public art now is inherent to the fabric of our city, whether monumental installations in our great public parks, plazas, and buildings, or more subtle interventions in neighborhood spaces,” said Nicholas Baume, director and chief curator of the Public Art Fund. “By its very nature—democratic, free, and open to all—it is the embodiment of our city’s values. A key aspect of Public Art Fund culture is to nurture creative talent, and that includes our own extraordinary team. Both Kellie and Daniel are outstanding professionals, leaders in our field, and wonderful colleagues. As we continue to embrace new opportunities to fulfill our mission, I’m excited to further our collaboration in their new roles.”
