Suzanne Randolph Art Curation Partner
Suzanne Randolph, Founder and Principal of Suzanne Randolph Fine Arts is Art Solutions Partner at Richard Vorisek Associates. Suzanne works with clients to establish the art program concepts and contractual parameters, and supervises team members assigned to the program by monitoring day-to-day activities. She also reviews and selects artwork identified by members of the SRFA team and presents recommendations to clients.
Suzanne's well-established career in the visual arts began with an early commitment to bringing the works of individual artists to diverse communities, corporate settings and public spaces. Over the years she has produced projects for an extraordinary range of clients, and more recently has integrated the forward-looking principles of “design thinking” as a way of expanding SRFA’s business strategy. This approach addresses the specific needs of stakeholders through the creation of meaningful experiences resulting from the collaboration of artists and designers.
Suzanne’s career in curating and arts administration began as the Director of Works of Art in Public Places for New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs, and as a Director of a CETA artists’ employment project based upon the WPA. Suzanne played an early and pivotal role in establishing the public art policies for the commissioning of artwork for the New York Transit Authority and Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Her work with cultural institutions has included coordinating the citywide component of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Mark di Suvero retrospective exhibition, and inaugurating as Co-Curator the outdoor sculpture exhibition program at Wave Hill Public Garden and Cultural Center in the northwest Bronx.
Suzanne received an MBA in Design Strategy from the California College of Arts in San Francisco, an innovative program that unites the perspectives of design thinking with sustainability, finance and entrepreneurship.
Suzanne has served on the Board of Directors of several New York City based arts organizations and cultural institutions and is currently active on the board of the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers which for the past 90 years has brought the remarkable work of teenagers with exceptional artistic and literary talent to a national audience through The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, with former winners including Andy Warhol, John Baldessari and Richard Avedon.
