Art Services International (ASI) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) educational organization which specializes in the development and circulation of fine-art exhibitions of the highest quality for museums in the U.S. and abroad. Lynn has directed the organization since its inception in 1988, and also serves as Chairman of the Board.
Lynn began her museum training in painting conservation at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, where her foundation in art examination, treatment and preservation was laid. She then served for two years on the staff of the American Association of Museums, Washington, DC, facilitating museum memberships and organizational development. For eight years she worked at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and, as Associate Registrar, handled all packing, collection, conditioning, installation and insurance matters for such exhibitions as "The Armand Hammer Collections: Five Centuries of Masterpieces," "Christo: Urban Projects," "Leonardo da Vinci: The Codex Leicester" and "Black Folk Art in America: 1930-1980."
She joined the International Exhibitions Foundation and, as Head Registrar, was responsible for loan contracts, U.S. Federal Indemnity application and supervision, and object safety for all exhibitions toured by the International Exhibitions Foundation. Among the projects she managed included “Auspicious Spirits: Korean Folk Paintings and Related Objects,” Eighteenth Century Italian Drawings from the Robert Lehman Collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art,” “Old Master Drawings from the Albertina” and “American Masters: The Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection.” In 1984 she was appointed Director of the International Exhibitions Foundation, the parent organization of Art Services International, and launched “Art Nouveau Jewelry by Rene Lalique,” “Old Master Drawings from Chatsworth,” “Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Masterpieces: The Courtauld Collection,” and the inaugural exhibition for the National Museum of Women in the Arts, “American Women Artists, 1830-1930.”
