1. Tell us about a meaningful experience you and/or a loved one had with the arts (dance, media, music, theater, or visual arts), either in school or in another setting. What did you and/or your loved one gain from this experience?
I have had a longstanding, broad and significant commitment to the arts, including as a collector of art, predominantly by Black artists. As the chair of the board of trustees of the Studio Museum in Harlem I have worked to support, promote, and advocate for artists of African descent, as well as work that has been inspired and influenced by Black culture – locally, nationally and internationally. I have also served as a trustee of the Whitney Museum of American art and other arts organizations. My support for the arts also extends to other media, including music, photography, film, dance and performing art.
