About the juror:
Rachel Rogerson is Executive Director of The MAC in Dallas, Texas. In the summer of 2015 Rogerson ably coordinated The MAC’s move from its home of more than 20 years on McKinney Avenue to a century-old five-building complex in the Cedars neighborhood south of downtown Dallas. During her tenure she has continued to advance the institution’s mission as an advocate for creative freedom by providing innovative programming. Recent projects include New Urban Landscape, a series of site-specific installations presented in The MAC’s raw warehouse space.

Prior to The MAC, Rogerson was Curator of Exhibitions at Gregg County Historical Museum in Longview, Texas, where she elevated the institution's profile through the celebrated permanent exhibition of the Buddy Calvin Jones Caddo Collection, one of the region's largest collections of Prehistoric artifacts related to East Texas' first peoples.

Rogerson received her master's in Museum and Gallery Studies from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. In Scotland, Rogerson co-curated an exhibition for the St. Andrews Museum and held positions at the Museum of the University of St. Andrews and Dunollie House. From 2011 to 2012 she served as Registrar at Kirk Hopper Fine Art. In 2008 Rogerson received her BFA from the University of North Texas.
