Amanda Horn is the new senior public relations director for Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and its sister organization, the Momentary in Bentonville.

In the new role, she reports to chief marketing, communications and digital officer KC Hurst.

“I am contributing to something far greater than myself that positively impacts the community,” Horn said. “I believe in the mission to welcome all to celebrate, gather, learn, and be inspired by art, architecture, nature, music, performance, and more. The work is deeply meaningful.”

Prior to joining Crystal Bridges, Horn was vice president of public relations for 4media group, a global integrated communications agency with dual headquarters in London and Bentonville. Before that, she was senior vice president of communications for the Nevada Museum of Art.

Horn is president-elect for the Northwest Arkansas chapter of the Public Relations Society of America.
