New Executive Director Named at The Hart Cluett Museum



The Hart Cluett Museum is pleased to announce its new Executive Director, Starlyn D’Angelo.

“After thoughtful consideration by the Museum’s search committee, the Board of Directors unanimously approved Starlyn’s appointment as Executive Director,” said Mark D. Shipley, Board President. “Star’s deep knowledge and experience in the museum field will secure our mission to enrich the present and advocate for the future by bringing the region’s past to life,” he stated. 

Starlyn D’Angelo, a Colorado native, relocated to New York to attend the highly regarded Cooperstown Graduate Program where she obtained a Master’s degree in Museum Studies. She served in curatorial roles at several museums including the Old Stone Fort Museum and the Shaker Museum Mt. Lebanon before becoming the Executive Director of the Shaker Heritage Society. During her 15-year tenure there she oversaw many important projects including the exterior restoration of the 1848 Shaker Meeting House, stabilization of the 1915 Shaker Barn Complex, and the development of Virtual Watervliet, an award-winning digital reconstruction of the historic site. Most recently, Starlyn served as Director of Philanthropy and Strategic Initiatives at the Palace Performing Arts Center where she led a successful new fundraising campaign and several community outreach initiatives. Starlyn serves on the Board of the Museum Association of New York and is active on its program committee. Her tenure at the Hart Cluett Museum will begin at the end of March.

Starlyn noted, “I look forward to leading this historic treasure and professional staff as we recognize every face and every story in Rensselaer County.”
