She works with an organization called “Creative Santa Fe,” and her official incident report reads like this….Cyndi Conn, Executive Director, has over fourteen years of expertise in the field of contemporary art. An independent curator and consultant, Cyndi held the position of Visual Arts Director and Curator of the Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe before founding LAUNCHPROJECTS in 2008.
