ABOUT THE JUROR- Vida Sabbaghi
Vida Sabbaghi attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Theory, Criticism, History of Art, Design and Architecture with an additional two years in Industrial Design, and her Master of Science, Art and Design Education.
Vida is a designer, an art historian, a curator, an educator, and an arts curriculum planner with fifteen years of experience in the arts. She is the Founder and Director of COPE NYC, an organization that uses art and design to promote social relations and to bridge communities through an academic, experiential, and communitarian approach. COPE NYC develops exhibitions, community art projects, conferences, and solutions for senior centers, museums, libraries, rehabilitative centers, K to 12 schools, and post-secondary schools.
Vida’s ongoing traveling exhibition, “An Inclusive World,” brings together self-taught and formally trained artists who share their artistic talents and inform the public about the social issues of diversity and inclusivity. This exhibition provides an opportunity to reinvent practice and theory in art in education and art in society. Vida has curated this exhibit at the Queens Museum, Columbia University, Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, and the Skylight Gallery in NYC. Her most recent installation, “An Inclusive World Project,” at Times Square Port Authority was featured on Good Day New York.
With COPE NYC, Vida has created several partnerships including Queens Public libraries, museums, schools, collegiate institutions, and senior centers where her teaching artists facilitate art and design programming. She works with her teaching artists to develop and lead workshops at cultural institutions and libraries.
In summer of 2016 Vida will curate a group exhibition at Governors Island.
