We mourn the untimely death of Susan Sollins on October 13, 2014. We join all who knew her to celebrate her creativity, leadership, and pioneering achievements in the arts. With prescient vision and a unique understanding of the fundamental role of curators, Susan founded ICI with Nina Castelli Sundell in 1975, heralding an unprecedented commitment to support contemporary art by connecting curators, artists, and art spaces across a global world of art. As Executive Director of ICI from 1975 to 1996, and Founder and Executive Director of Art21 since 1997, she was driven by a sense of civic purpose, steadfast in her belief in the power of art and artists to inspire millions. She will continue to inspire us every day.
