Joint Locust Projects and Oolite Arts for a conversation with Heidi Zuckerman, Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director, Aspen Art Museum.
During her tenure with the museum, Zuckerman has boosted its stature from local art gallery to internationally-recognized institution. She successfully spearheaded a capital campaign to fund the museum’s new Shigeru Ban–designed building, raised more than $120 million and increased its endowment by more than 300 percent. To date at the museum, she has curated 100+ exhibitions, including traveling exhibitions to 15 venues across North America. She established the Aspen Art Press, which has produced exhibition catalogues distributed nationally and internationally. Previously, Zuckerman served as chair of the art curatorial department at the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
