Zahra Sherzad

Visual Art Lead

A degree in Art History with a strong focus on sculpture lead me to several years at the Isumu Noguchi Museum. I then became interested in contemporary art and began my career at the frontier of the Street Art movement. I’ve pursued showing works of emerging artists in galleries, museums and in the public sector. I began my work in activism and philanthropy as a founding member of School of Hope an organization supporting underground girl schools in Kabul, Afghanistan during the Taliban era. Currently I reside as Board Chair on The Heliotrope Foundation, started by artist Swoon, to help communities respond and heal after natural disasters and other urgent humanitarian crises. I continue to try to merge the two worlds together, through art we can create a platform to discuss and address social change.

 

How I Level Forward:  I live by example for my three young daughters. Together we discuss how we can bridge the gender gap and make the unlikely finally seem possible.
