Sarah Higgins

Curator

I grew up in Camden County, Georgia and received a BFA in Printmaking & Sculpture from the Atlanta College of Art. I went on to receive a M.A. in Curatorial Studies from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard), where I also worked as Graduate Program Coordinator (2013-2015).

I have curated over 30 exhibitions featuring a diverse range of emerging, established, and international artists for institutions such as Atlantic Center for the Arts, Hessel Museum of Art, and the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art. I was Exhibition Coordinator for the 2013 MFA Thesis Exhibition, Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College, a member of the curatorial team for the exhibition 199A–199B, a retrospective of works from the 1990s by Liam Gillick in the Hessel Museum of Art, and a Curatorial Fellow under Lauren Cornell at New Museum, NY.

From 2007–2011, I was Community Arts Director and Curator of Atlantic Center for the Arts’ Harris House Gallery in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. There, I developed multidisciplinary youth arts and residency programs, and managed community outreach and educational programming. Before 2007, I worked as an Educator at Artpace, and as Assistant to the Director at Parchman Stremmel Gallery, both in San Antonio, Texas.
