Ringling Appoints Sarah Cartwright Curator of Collections

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, announced today that Sarah Cartwright has been named its new curator of collections. She took up the post on July 28.

Cartwright first joined the Ringling in 2013 as a postdoctoral curatorial research fellow. When she completed the fellowship, she assumed the role of grants administrator and has secured more than a million dollars in support of exhibitions, conservation, and general operations for the museum over the past three years.

“Sarah Cartwright has been invaluable to the institution,” said executive director Steven High. “I was thrilled to offer her this promotion, as she has a comprehensive knowledge of the collection as well as a wealth of experience. I look forward to seeing the exciting work she will do as a member of our curatorial staff.”

Prior to joining the Ringling, Cartwright held curatorial positions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and at Villa La Pietra in Florence, Italy, and was a Mellon postdoctoral teaching fellow in art history at Columbia University.
