Sarah Harrelson

2024 Summer Series
Creative Director

Sarah Harrelson is the founder and editor-in-chief of CULTURED magazine. Since founding the publication in 2011, she has built CULTURED into a success story in independent publishing at the intersection of art, design, and Hollywood thanks in large part to her penchant for talent discovery and ability to connect top players in industries seeking to align with culture.

Harrelson moved to Miami to start her career as a newspaper reporter and later took on the role of editor-in-chief of Art Basel magazine. She launched CULTURED with the goal of creating a publication that gives readers the chance to truly discover talent at a time when many publishing juggernauts reserve cover slots for familiar faces. Harrelson lives in Los Angeles with her husband, interior designer Austin Harrelson. The couple have two daughters and one son.


Launched in Miami in 2012 by founder and editor-in-chief Sarah Harrelson, CULTURED is a definition-defying publication that seeks to break down the borders between creative disciplines and showcase the complexities of the art ecosystem. A nationally distributed magazine in print, CULTURED expands its reach online, connecting with a targeted demographic of tastemakers, artists, and collectors who engage with our platform as a 24/7 discovery vehicle. The publication has become a trusted compass for fashion, art, design, and architecture, consistently spring boarding young voices into the conversation through thought-provoking coverage. CULTURED captivates readers through the power of diverse storytelling. To learn more or read the content digitally, visit: or follow @cultured_mag on Instagram.
