Sarah Schroth Reappointed Director of the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University

DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA—Sarah Schroth has been appointed to a second five-year term as the Mary D.B.T. And James H. Semans Director of the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Geoffrey Mock reports for Duke Today. Schroth joined the museum in 1995 and was named director in 2013. During her tenure, she has overseen the Nasher’s tenth anniversary celebrations in 2015, organized the exhibitions “Pop América 1965–1975” and “El Greco to Velázquez: Art during the Reign of Philip III,” and collaborated with institutions like the Museo del Prado and the Seattle Art Museum, among others.

“The Nasher Museum has contributed significantly to the Duke and Durham communities as well as to the art world more broadly thanks in great part to Sarah’s leadership,” Duke provost Sally Kornbluth said. “She is committed to integrating the arts into the Duke educational experience, but also views the museum as a resource for the region and as an active participant in the arts nationally and internationally.”

Schroth’s reappointment was overseen by a faculty committee chaired by Tom Rankin, professor of the practice of art and director of the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts. In addition to serving as the Nasher’s director, Schroth leads courses in Spanish art and exhibition studies, connoisseurship, and conservation. She has previously held positons at the Kimbell Museum, the National Gallery of Art, and the Ackland Museum of Art at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
