Sarah Salomon, YPC Member

Meet YPC Member Sarah Salomon

What is your occupation?
I work for a start-up that publishes comics and graphic novelizations of Disney-licensed properties.

What was the last book you read?
I’m currently reading Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari. It’s a fascinating look at the history of our species.

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Them There Eyes by Billie Holiday.

Where is your favourite place in the world?
Paris!

Why did you join YPC?
I wanted the opportunity to broaden my network, and I knew the ROM would be a terrific place to meet people with similar interests.

What do you like best about being a Young Patron of the ROM?
I love having early knowledge of and access to the ROM’s exhibitions. And the ability to bring guests to previews and FNL is pretty awesome.

Describe the ROM in one word.
Expansive.

Tell us one of your favourite ROM memories.
I remember seeing a Rodin exhibition at the ROM when I was quite young that inspired in me a life-long love of art. I have had a special place in my heart for the ROM ever since!

What do you love most about the ROM?
I love that every time I visit the ROM I leave feeling that I’ve learned something new.

If you could have anything from the ROM’s collections, what would you choose?
I have to hold off on answering this until I get a look at the dresses in the upcoming Dior exhibition . . .
