JUROR: Our Juror for the 2019 Waterworks exhibit is Sarah Hall, Chief Curator, Director of Collections at The Frick. She has more than 20 years’ experience at The Frick Pittsburgh and has been in charge of the curatorial department since 2007. In this role she oversees the care, exhibition, and interpretation of the Frick’s permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. The collections at the Frick are particularly expansive--encompassing historic structures, cars, and fine and decorative arts. She has been involved in the staging of nearly 80 exhibitions, with more than a dozen of these Frick organized, and was part of the team responsible for planning the Frick's recent $15-million site expansion.

Over the past three years she has been instrumental in helping to create a higher profile for the Frick’s exhibition program through an eclectic exhibition schedule that includes such variety as 19th-century French paintings (Van Gogh, Monet, Degas: The Mellon Collection of French Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts), high fashion (Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe) and photography, as well as refocusing internal energies on care, interpretation, and publication of The Frick’s own collection. She has also played an instrumental role in the inception and continuation of the Frick’s programming with contemporary artists beginning in 2000 with Clayton Days: Picture Stories by Vik Muniz and most recently working as part of the team to organize the first traveling retrospective of the ingenious paper sculptures of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave.

Other recent accomplishments include presenting at the symposium Contemporary Art in Historic Contexts held at Vizcaya (2018), participation as a panelist at the Museum Computer Network Conference (2017), part of the jury panel for the American Alliance of Museum Muse Awards (video, film, and animation category), reinstallation of The Frick’s Car and Carriage Museum (2015), leader of the team creating the Frick’s online presence as the first Pittsburgh museum
