About

Sarah Wambold

I am currently the Director of Digital Media at the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. I focus on digital media strategy and production for museums and cultural organizations. As a skilled and experienced project manager, I work with organizations to identify audience needs, align opportunities with institutional priorities, and lead collaborative teams to execute solutions. My portfolio of projects includes website design, video production, digital publishing, and platform design and development.

I am passionate about storytelling, content strategy, and user research. With more than a decade of experience in the arts and culture sector, I have interviewed more than 100 artists, curators, and other art-world stakeholders for projects and organizations including the Biennial of the Americas, Art21, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, where I was also Digital Media Director. As a consultant, my clients have included the Andy Warhol Museum, the Clyfford Still Museum, the Denver Botanic Gardens, and the University of Colorado.

I am also co-founder of Denver-based non-profit Tilt West, an organization whose mission is to promote critical discourse focused on arts and culture through live events and publishing efforts. My educational background includes graphic design, journalism and arts management.
