Maggie Lyko is the Director of Special Events and Affiliate Programs. She joined MoMA in 1999, and held a range of different development positions prior to taking on her current role in 2013. She leads and oversees the strategy and operations for all Museum events and fundraising benefits, a robust corporate rental business, special projects and travel for the Board of Trustees, and the stewardship of MoMA’s affiliate groups—including the David Rockefeller Council, the Contemporary Arts Council, the Black Arts Council, and the Junior Associates. Lyko helped lead the capital campaigns for the Museum’s 2004 and 2019 building projects, and she oversaw the two-week public reopening celebration of the latest expansion in October 2019. Prior to joining the Museum, Lyko worked in fundraising and event management at the New York Public Library and NYU School of Medicine. She received her BA in art history and communications from Marist College and studied Irish art and culture at Trinity College in Dublin.
