Sandra Jackson-Dumont leaves SAM

From Pacific NW magazine staff writer Tyrone Beason:

Sandra Jackson-Dumont, who spearheaded Seattle Art Museum’s popular Remix parties and curated some of its most engaging recent exhibits, has been named to lead education programs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Since joining SAM in 2006 as community outreach coordinator as well as adjunct modern and contemporary art curator, she has championed programs that break down barriers between major arts institutions like SAM and the general public, particularly young people, and expand the museum’s cultural reach. Her most successful effort on this front is Remix, a quarterly nighttime party at SAM that blends art-viewing, DJ’d music, live performances, hands-on art activities and guided tours by local tastemakers. Among the recent exhibits she has helped organize is “Born by a River,” African-American photographer LaToya Ruby Frazier’s visual chronicle of the deterioration of her hometown in Pennsylvania.

She starts her new job as the Met’s Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education in May.
