Pamela Winfrey has been a curator for the Exploratorium, a museum of science, art, and human perception since 1986. As such she has created and curated such events as "Mozart Under Glass," "Public Viewing," "The Prepared Exploratorium," and "Self Propelled." She has also been the Exploratorium's director of the performance program, the acting director of the arts, and is now the senior artist for the Center for Public Exhibitions. Pamela Winfrey has been a curator, performer, and writer for the past twenty years. She has written over twenty theatrical works. Her theatrical pieces have been seen at such diverse venues as Lilleth Women's Theatre, New Dramatist's in New York, San Francisco City College, Cedar Rapids Community Theater in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, SOMARTS in San Francisco, and Pomona Hills Playwriting Conference in Pomona, California. She is a founding member of Mobius Operandi, an electro-acoustic sound sculpture ensemble and performance company. From 1993 to 1997, she was one of the main collaborators (book and lyrics) who created five large-scale theatrical productions that explored a multi-disciplinary approach to performance, "Exit Vacaville," which was produced for two consecutive years, and received rave reviews. Since that time, she has written lyrics for the two CDs "What Were We Thinking" and "The End of the Dial." In 2003, she received an individual artist grant for playwriting from the Marin Arts Council.
