Katherine Frost

Katherine Frost holds a BA in Art History from Manhattanville College where she discovered the blending of art and social justice. She was drawn to the Art History MA program at Purchase College because it provides a hands-on approach working within a permanent collection in preparation for a future career as a curator or art historian. She is aiming to further her overall experience in the combination of art and social justice, focusing specifically on how to combine these two genres in new and creative ways in order to educate, change the conversation around art, and create inclusive spaces for all. Her core belief is that everyone deserves an opportunity to feel welcomed and accepted as they are. Katherine is currently an intern with the Justice Arts Coalition, a non-profit organization that unites teaching artists, art advocates, and currently and formerly incarcerated artists in harnessing the power of the arts to reimagine justice. In five years, she sees herself passionately curating an exhibition including artists affected by the justice system, breaking the boundaries of curation, and building the relationship between curator, artist and justice.
