A native of Fort Worth, Scott Winterrowd has made a career working in the art world. He has worked at major museums including the Amon Carter Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. He has served in the education department at the Meadows Museum at SMU for over the last eleven years most recently serving as Director of Education. In July of 2019, he will begin a new role as Director of the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth.

As an artist, Scott has created work in watercolor and print media over the last twenty-five years. His larger body of work is primarily drawn from travel related imagery, postcards and roadside culture. Over the past ten years his work has centered on landscape views and the expansive dark skies of the desert southwest. His subjects often reference sites previously encountered by American artists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
