Sarah Horowitz *14
Sarah Horowitz *14 is currently the Curatorial Assistant at the Picker Art Gallery and Longyear Museum of Anthropology at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. Her job entails a wide range of research and exhibitions-related activities. Most recently, she has been conducting provenance research on objects in the Picker Art Gallery’s collections and curating an exhibit featuring the work of multimedia contemporary artist, Jaye Rhee, which will open September 17th, 2015. Sarah is also the main author of the publication accompanying the exhibit, which will include a catalogue essay and interview with the artist. The broad background in the history of art she acquired in Art History at UMass Amherst has been critical for her research projects at Colgate, where she has dabbled in everything from American painting to Chinese woodblock prints. She also credits her experiences as a Curatorial Fellow at the University Museum of Contemporary Art and Collections Assistant at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art during her time at UMass. Both were incredibly beneficial in preparing her for a career in museums.
