Member Spotlight: Ray & Sarah

The New Museum has always been a place to see amazing shows and learn more about artists we love.

When did you join the New Museum?

January 2011, just before the George Condo exhibition opened.

How did you become involved?

We have been going to New Museum exhibitions for a very long time. It has always been a place to see amazing shows and learn more about artists we love. Some of our most memorable experiences were at the old location on Broadway, where we saw shows by William Kentridge, Adrian Piper, and Paul McCarthy. Those New Museum exhibitions cemented our love for contemporary art.

What are your favorite Member perks?

Studio visits are our favorite Member perk. We hear new perspectives on artists’ works and get to see works-in-progress with other young professionals, which strengthens the community of art lovers. Another amazing perk is hanging out with your fabulous Associate Director of Development, Joyce Sitterly.

Summary of your professional endeavors:

We are fortunate that our careers have overlapped considerably in the past few years, which has enabled us to travel the world together. Sarah began her career as an artist and Ray began in finance law. Ray became more active in art and Sarah became more active in business, so the intersection of both was art advising. We share a deep love for building private collections, including our own. These days, Ray does much of the art advising as Sarah has taken a more active role in designing interiors for her clients. Ray is the producer and interviewer for SPOTTLESS, a documentary film about the state of the contemporary art world. We also have a number of passion projects, including, which is an encyclopedia of artist bios and an art news site.
