by SAH News | Jul 16, 2013

Cheryl Robertson, a highly respected curator, speaker and author in the Arts and Crafts community, passed away over the weekend of July 6th, at her home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She was 60 years old.

For more than thirty years Cheryl had served in museums as well as at universities, both as a professor and as a curator. As such she organized, prepared and directed the installation of numerous temporary and permanent displays for major exhibitions. Cheryl prided herself in her efforts to help museums revitalize what she liked to call "tired art museum exhibits." In addition, she often assisted private individuals restoring and furnishing historic homes, helped manage small and large single-owner collections, and worked with local historical societies.
