Washington, DC | BreakfastTable with Susan Fisher Sterling

December 2, 2022 | 8:00 am

Headshot of Susan Fisher Sterling

Join ArtTable in Washington, DC for a BreakfastTable program with Susan Fisher Sterling, the Alice West Director at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. She will speak about building her career and the stature of the museum around the message of equity for women through excellence in the arts.

Unusual for the museum field, Sterling has dedicated her entire career to advancing the mission of the Women’s Museum. As associate curator, curator of modern and contemporary art, and then chief curator/deputy director, she spent her first 20 years organizing exhibitions and publications of contemporary women artists.

Sterling assumed the directorship of the museum in 2008. During her tenure the museum has flourished, regularly receiving the highest Charity Navigator rating of 4 stars for sound fiscal and programmatic management. Sterling also has re-energized the Museum’s programming and profile through an institutional re-brand, which includes the popular #5womenartists social media campaign, and the groundbreaking Women Arts and Social Change public programs initiative. She is currently involved in plans for a major renovation of the museum and a $55 million capital campaign, to be announced in May 2021.

A life-long champion of women through the arts, Sterling has received National Orders of Merit from Brazil and Norway. She is recognized as one of the Most Powerful Women in Washington by Washingtonian Magazine, and is a recipient of ArtTable 30th Anniversary Honors as well as the President’s Award from the Women’s Caucus for Art.
