About our Juror

                Catherine Walworth is the Jackye and Curtis Finch, Jr. Curator of Drawings at the
                Arkansas Museum of Fine Art in Little Rock. She was previously at the Columbia
                Museum of Art where she was curator. At the Columbia Museum of Art, Walworth
                oversaw 18 exhibitions, including bringing Jackson Pollock’s famous 20-foot “Mural”

                to the museum and organized solo exhibitions with contemporary artists such as
                Renee Cox and Anila Quayyum Agha. Additionally, Walworth acquired new collection
                objects by artists such as Sanford Biggers, Kwame Brathwaite, Elizabeth Catlett,
                Charles and Ray Eames, and Eileen Gray.

                She received her B.A. from Cornell College (1995); M.A. from the University of
                Washington (2000), and Ph.D. from The Ohio State University in 2013. She uses a
                broad cultural lens for approaching artworks, including political and economic con-

                texts. Her book Soviet Salvage: Imperial Debris, Revolutionary Reuse, and Russian
                Constructivism (Penn State University Press, 2017) was short-listed for a First Book
                Prize by the Modernist Studies Association in 2018. Walworth is a co-author of the
                groundbreaking industrial design monograph Silver to Steel: The Modern Designs of

                Peter Muller-Munk (Carnegie Museum of Art, 2015) and a contributor to Artistic Luxu-
                ry: Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique (Cleveland Museum of Art, 2008).

                Walworth began her career at the Seattle Art Museum (1996-2002) and held curato-

                rial positions at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas (2002-2004), a cura-
                torial fellowship at the Cleveland Museum of Art (2006-2008) and was a Curatorial
                Research Assistant at Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (2014-2015). She served
                as one of only two curators at the Columbia Museum of Art where she oversaw

                numerous collection-based and traveling exhibitions, and organized several modern
                and contemporary exhibitions, including Renée Cox: Soul Culture (2017); Jackson
                Pollock: Mural (2018-2019); and Mimi Kato: Ordinary Sagas (2019).
