She served the District of Columbia’s municipal government as its first official curator for nine years while on staff at the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. While there, she contemporized the city-owned collection of fine art, began a robust practice of producing city-funded exhibitions for the specific benefit of District residents, and developed a new grant program to support emerging curators with funding and gallery space to realize compelling ideas. At the close of 2018, she decided to work independently in order to more effectively collaborate with artists to produce transformative and visionary projects. Since then, Zoma has served as President of the Black Artists of DC in 2021 and is an adjunct professor of African American Art History at the University of the District of Columbia.
