Miranda Massie ’92 MA


Miranda Massie is the founder and director of New York City’s Climate Museum, the first climate-dedicated museum in the US. The Museum mobilizes interdisciplinary arts programming to empower climate protagonists, recognizing that our public culture does not currently reflect the overwhelming support for transformational climate action that exists across the US, and that a cultural shift to break this climate silence is required to enable and sustain such action. Since the Museum’s public programming began in late 2017, Miranda has overseen the presentation of eight major installations and exhibitions and over 250 events. The Museum's programs, which emphasize community and justice, have received extensive recognition in outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Exhibition, and The Art Newspaper.

Miranda left a career in civil rights impact litigation to establish the Museum, having been awarded a Mentorship-in-Residence at Yale Law School and W.E.B. DuBois Institute and Wasserstein Public Interest Fellowships at Harvard University, among other honors, in her prior role. She is a Public Voices Fellow on the Climate Crisis with the OpEd Project and the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication.
