Ksenia Grishkova Orol, a seasoned professional with over 20 years of experience in arts management, now brings her design expertise and art background to the Social Media Team at the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). In this role, she creates multimedia assets and visual campaigns that engage museum audiences in unique and innovative ways.

Before her tenure at NMAAHC, under Ksenia’s leadership, Touchstone Gallery consistently garnered acclaim and recognition from D.C.
