Bio/Description

Kirstin Ohrt draws on a diverse background to showcase the work of the Department of Art & Archaeology. Since 2019, Ohrt has cataloged the coins excavated during Princeton’s 1930s Antioch excavation and is researching the expedition’s history. Previously, she oversaw communications for a wine importer in New York for over a decade.

Her interests in art, history and culture have long fed her sense of adventure. She has worked as a copy editor in Budapest, an art consultant in Los Angeles, an archivist in Göttingen, Germany, and as a cruise director on China’s Yangtze River. She holds a B.A. in history and German from UC Santa Barbara and a Diploma in Wine and Spirits from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. 

Ohrt enjoys photography, gardening, and exploring. Her love of nature and belief in its benefits, especially for children, inspired her to create the local trail guide footpathing.com
