Hello! I’m Sara Woodbury, an interdisciplinary researcher, curator, and digital humanist dedicated to expanding how museums define and enable access to art. My scholarly research considers how museums use traveling exhibitions and other mobile, collections-based interventions to expand their audiences. As a curator, I’ve interpreted an eclectic range of material culture as art, including dolls, robots, and new media.
In addition to my scholarly and curatorial work, I maintain an artistic practice that considers the intersections between time, change, and the sense of place. I work in several media, including painting, printmaking, ceramics, and sketching.
I’m currently completing my Ph.D. in American Studies at William & Mary. My dissertation concentrates on art outreach exhibitions in the United States during the twentieth century. To learn more about my work, check out my portfolio below.
