Sierra Van Ryck DeGroot Education Programs Manager Poster House

Sierra's exposure to the arts began in the womb with the carefully selected playlists of her parents hoping to awaken the creative nature of their child. Since then, she has aspired to be a vet, biomedical illustrator, astronaut, and graphic designer before finding her "just right" match in museum education. 

A proud alumna of Seton Hall University (B.A in Graphic Design, Fine Art and Art History) and Bank Street College of Education (M.S.Ed in Museum Education with a specialization in Childhood Education), Sierra explores the intersections of art, design, history, and play in her work as the Education Programs Manager at Poster House. You can often find her covered in glue and some form of marker, paint or glitter, surrounded by children or in a gallery, in the midst of a tableau. 

She is the current Secretary and Peer Group Liaison for the NYCMER Board.

Exhibitions and Interpretation Peer Group Meeting

Where: MoMA
11 W 53rd Street
New York, NY

When:6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Exploring MoMA’s “remixed” permanent collections

When MoMA reopened in October, the museum debuted reorganized permanent collection galleries that deviate from their previous practice of organizing artwork chronologically and by medium. The redesign is intended to increase diversity and invite greater comparison among different eras, art forms, and parts of the world. We will explore the 5th floor galleries, “Collection: 1880s-1940s,” examine some of the display styles and interpretive techniques that MoMA is using, and discuss how we can reexamine and remix our own collections for greater impact and engagement.


Meet in the lobby near the 54th Street entrance. Admission is free for Uniqlo Free Fridays.

To RSVP, please email Exhibitions and Interpretations Peer Group Coordinator, Tori Lewis.
