Previously, she was Director of The Watermill Center, founded by Robert Wilson, where she developed a year-round program of international, cross-disciplinary artist-in-residence programs, produced large site-specific events, and developed a humanities program including lectures, screenings, education events and tours of a 8,000 piece art collection. From 2004 - 2008, she was a Project Director in arts-led regeneration across London and East of England where she was involved in visioning, strategy and delivery across public realm projects.

She holds a BFA in theater direction and an MA in Art History and sits on advisory and review panels for cross-disciplinary arts organizations.

Ms. Dobbin currently co-teaches as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the NYU Robert F Wagner Graduate School of Public Service The Arts & Artist in Urban Revitalization with Tim Tompkins.

Of the collaboration with Clocktower on the After Hours series, Sherry Dobbin says: “After Hours is the newest iteration of this kind of creative, underground, culture-shaping event to come to the Crossroads of the World. By converting our neighborhood’s spaces into mini-galleries and show places, we are reaffirming Times Square’s position in the artistic vanguard.”
