The newest addition to the KW|AG team arrived a little more than two weeks ago and we are soooo thrilled to have her.
Sara Munroe is the Gallery’s new Development and Marketing Coordinator (and an avid coupon clipper, but more on that later). What does that entail you may ask? Well A LOT, but most significantly right now she is working on organizing our Black & Gold Gala (which is October 18 by-the-way).
Sara grew up in Cambridge. Following 19 straight (and in her words “long”) years of schooling she graduated in 2010. She holds an Honours BA in History and Studio Art from the University of Guelph and a Master of Museum Studies from the University of Toronto. Before joining us she spent the last two years at the Norfolk Arts Centre in Simcoe.
Here’s more on Sara:
Q: What aspect of your new job with KW|AG are you most looking forward to taking on?
A: I am particularly excited about the Black & Gold Gala. It’s such a big project and I get to be immersed in it from start to finish, so I know that the gala itself will be thrilling as I’ll see firsthand how all of our hard work has paid off.
Q: What do you do when you’re not at the Gallery?
A: Mostly, I relax with a good book or play with my two adorable pugs. I love going to live theatre, amusement parks, fairs and arts festivals, so I try to do that on weekends. I am also an avid baker, so I enjoy spending my evenings making cupcakes, pies and even wedding cakes for friends and family.
Q: If you were a cereal what kind would you be and why?
A: I’m a huge coupon clipper and deal finder, so I would be whatever cereal is on sale at the time (and comes with a free movie admission pass, too!)
Side note: Some of us at the Gallery had no idea you could get free movie passes in cereal. Thanks Sara!
Q: What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
A: It is filled with fresh fruit and dairy, but the vegetables are neglected and shrivelled. Though, there would be juices that have vegetables blended into them to trick me into “eating” them.
Q: If you could spend the day with any artist (dead or alive) who would it be and what would you do?
A: I would spend the day making time capsules with Andy Warhol. To see what he thought future generations should see about him, his community and the world around him, would have been fascinating. I would love to see the time capsules that he actually made, which are at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
