Dawn Eshelman, Museum Programmer

Manhattan's Rubin Museum of Art gives new meaning to "Night at the Museum." Visitors have Dawn Eshelman to thank for that! As Head of Programs she creates interactive events that explore over-arching ideas in art. They include lectures, movie screenings, live music dance, demonstrations and...sleep-overs! It's Dawn who came up with the Rubin Museum's Dream Over Program. There's plenty to talk about in this behind-the-scenes look at one of New York City's premier museums that is dedicated to the collection, display and preservation of the art and cultures of the Himalayas.

Johanne Reid, Romare Bearden Foundation Co-Director

Johanne Bryant Reid managed to merge her business career with her passion for the arts. While working at Merrill Lynch as Manager of its Global Human Resources Department, she joined the Board of the Romare Bearden Foundation. After serving as primary fundraiser for 7 years, she was named co-director in 2009. The foundation was created in 1990 as a non-profit, aimed at preserving and perpetuating the legacy of this pre-eminent African/American artist. So the Reid/Bearden match makes perfect sense. He made art, she makes sure it lives on. Sit back and enjoy this engaging conversation.
