About Anne Pasternak
On September 1, 2015, Anne Pasternak joined the Brooklyn Museum, one of the oldest and largest fine arts collections in the nation. Previously, she served as President and Artistic Director of Creative Time, a non-profit arts organization based in New York City that commissions and presents adventurous public art projects. In her twenty years of leadership, the organization collaborated with hundreds of artists, expanded its work globally, and introduced millions of people to innovative contemporary art practices. Renowned projects include performances in the historic Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage, sculptural installations in Grand Central Station’s Vanderbilt Hall, sign paintings in Coney Island, skywriting over Manhattan, and among the most remarkable, the Tribute in Light, the twin beacons of light that illuminated the sky above the former World Trade Center site six months after 9/11, and which continue to be presented on the anniversaries of that date.
