Jul 29, 2020 | Boardroom Bound

The boardroom from a unique perspective

About this episode

It’s not everyday we think about the intersection of art and business. In our case specifically it’s not everyday we consider what boardroom leadership looks like when married with art history. Today we get the opportunity to hear from an expert in that field with a proven track record of success, Heidi Zuckerman.

Heidi is the Founder of HiZ.art, a multi-platform project that connects all to art through a podcast series: Conversations About Art, talks program, and more. An inspiring storyteller and trusted conversation partner, Zuckerman has invited artists, curators, collectors, athletes, actors, musicians, politicians and CEOs to explore art through threads of uncertainty, happiness, and spirituality on her podcast, Conversations About Art, of which new episodes are available every other Tuesday.


Heidi, is also a globally recognized leader in contemporary art and the former CEO and Director of the Aspen Art Museum. After re-imagining the museum as a world-class institution, she raised more than $120 Million and built a new, highly-acclaimed museum with Shigeru Ban, the 2014 Pritzker Prize winner for architecture.  She has curated more than 100 exhibitions during her career and is the author of numerous books including Conversations with Artists I and II and a widely loved children’s book The Rainbow Hour with artist Amy Adler. Heidi also served as the Chair of the YPO Art Network. She earned a BA in European History from the University of Pennsylvania and a MA in Art History from Hunter College at CUNY and a Harvard Business School Executive Education Women on Boards certification in 2018.

In today’s episode, Heidi provides exclusive insight from her years governing institutions dedicated to the preservation and celebration of art. We are given the unique opportunity to consider governance from a unique perspective while drawing conclusions about best practices from a proven exper in the field.
