My exhibition Robert Cumming: The Secret Life of Objects, was on view at the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York, in early 2017 and will travel to the California Museum of Photography in 2018. In 2016, I was a finalist for the Creative Capitol/Warhol Foundation’s Arts Writers Grant Program and, in 2014, I was granted their 6-month workshop in arts writing co-sponsored by the International Art Critics Association (as Sarah Bay Williams). Also in 2016, I was named one of ten finalists for the International Awards for Art Criticism, English Language. Before receiving my masters in art history from the University of California, Riverside, I was a research fellow in the Photography Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
