New Artistic Director Appointed by the Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation

The Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation has appointed Sara Reisman artistic director, as part of the foundation’s new Art and Social Justice initiative.

Reisman will oversee the realization of this program across the two categories of programming and grant making. She will also be curating a program of exhibitions and events for the 8th Floor in New York, an interdisciplinary space featuring programming on the intersection of art, culture, and philanthropy.

Prior to her appointment, Reisman was the director of New York City’s Percent for Art program at the department of Cultural Affairs, where she managed more than one hundred public and civic commissions across the five boroughs.
