Kerri Sancomb


Exhibits Production Manager
Preservation: Conservation & Exhibition Services
About

I am responsible for overseeing the production of exhibits in five of the Yale University Libraries including the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, the Lewis Walpole Library, Hass Family Arts Library and two spaces in the Sterling Memorial Library (the Memorabilia Room and the SML exhibits corridor). Some of my production responsibilities include managing the production calendar for all venues, coordinating the conservation review and any pre-exhibit treatment, production of all exhibit mounts and installation in each venue. I am the chair of the SML exhibits committee and am leading a three year pilot project to incorporate student-curated exhibits into the library’s exhibit programming (2015-2017).

Background

Prior to working at Yale I was the Exhibition Specialist at the University of Chicago, Special Collections Research Center for ten years. I have an MFA in Printmaking and Book Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and a BFA in Printmaking from the Kansas City Art Institute.

Interests

My husband Jeff Mueller and I own a letterpress print business, Dexterity Press, which we started in Chicago in 2000. He is now the sole printer and runs the shop out of Erector Square in New Haven.
