Portrait of Megan Cavanaugh

Head of Operations

Megan Cavanaugh, head of operations, has been at the Wexner Center for the Arts since 2003. She has held several previous positions at the Wex, including director of exhibitions management, director of patron services and head registrar, and has been in her current role since 2019. She recently served as co-interim executive director with Kelly Stevelt.

Megan oversees institutional initiatives across the Wex, ranging from interdisciplinary programming to strategic planning, and works collaboratively with partners across campus and the community and beyond. Thanks to her long history within the exhibitions department, she still works closely with the gallery-based programs and their budgets, contracts, and logistics, and is involved in these areas throughout the center. She has occasionally acted as a curator on architecture- and design-related exhibitions, including Sarah Oppenheimer: S-337473, Architecture Interruptus, and All of Everything: Todd Oldham Fashion, and has been honored to work closely with such artists as LaToya Ruby Frazier, Tomashi Jackson, and Taryn Simon. Megan collaborates with the entire Wex team to create the most compelling experiences possible for our artists and audiences alike.

Megan has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Washington University in St. Louis, as well a Master of Architecture and a Master of Business Administration from The Ohio State University. She spent her last year of architecture school working at the Wex, and then came on full time after graduation, and remains grateful for the opportunities the Wex provides for students of all ages.
