Rand Suffolk

Randall Suffolk became the Nancy and Holcombe T. Green, Jr., Director of the High Museum of Art in November 2015. Suffolk is honored to lead the High and set the vision for the museum’s curatorial program and collection. He is also committed to diversifying and expanding the High’s audience and enhancing the visitor experience through audience engagement and community-focused initiatives. Prior to this appointment at the High, Suffolk served as Director/President of the Philbrook Museum of Art (2007-2015). While there, he championed the Museum’s renewed commitment to community engagement. These efforts led to the reinstallation of 75% of the Museum’s permanent collection galleries; a 22% increase in membership; a 63% increase in attendance; and a dramatic change in visitor demographics – including five consecutive years with minority participation over 40% of total attendance. Suffolk earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Connecticut College, a Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration from Columbia University, and a Master of Arts in Art History from Bryn Mawr College.
