Gallery Expert, Art Writer
For Susan Zevon, New York City is one giant art gallery. Growing up in the Big Apple, she immediately fell in love with its diverse artwork at a young age, and later obtained an Art History degree from Smith College. Today, her artistic eye remains as focused as ever. She currently consults for Elle Décor Magazine and serves as the docent for one of the top museums in the country.
Where You'll Meet
The Whitney Museum of American Art prides itself on being on the cutting edge of art. Its curators often obtain works the same year that they are created—and well before the artist gains notoriety. The museum, which was started by art advocate Gloria Vanderbilt Whitney, pays special attention to living artists, though it also collects and preserves works for posterity.
