Stolen liberally from the MCA website, with a bit of BAS embellishment:
Grynsztejn was born in Lima, Peru, and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, and London, England. She studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and received her BA in art history and French from Newcomb College of Tulane University, and her MA in art history from Columbia University. She is a former Helena Rubenstein Fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and a 2007 graduate of the Getty Foundation’s Museum Leadership Institute. Grynsztejn has written, lectured, and taught extensively on contemporary art. She served as a panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts and the Galeria de Arte Nacional in Caracas, among other agencies. She acted as a juror for the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, the American Academy in Rome, the Munich
Kunstpreis in Germany, and the Tiffany
Foundation Biennial Awards. She has also served on the advisory
committees for the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the American
Center in Paris. She is fluent in English, Spanish, and French. Her
husband, Tom Shapiro, is a marketing consultant and a damn nice
guy. Yes, Bad at Sports added the “damn nice guy” part, the MCA
would never be so inappropriately casual in a blurb! How dare us.
The nerve! It's true though, he really is nice.
