Randall Suffolk

Randall Suffolk is the Nancy and Holcombe T. Green, Jr., Director of the High Museum of Art.
Since his arrival in 2015, he has championed a renewed commitment to community engagement,
placing emphasis on collaboration, inclusivity and access. To support these objectives, the
Museum has reduced admission fees, greatly diversified its exhibition schedule, added more than
1,500 objects to the collection, worked collaboratively with nearly 30 community partners
annually, and developed a variety of new programming to serve its increasingly diverse, multigenerational
audience. Suffolk is currently leading the development of a sweeping 2018
reinstallation of the Museum’s collection galleries.


Prior to joining the High, Suffolk served as director of Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Okla.
and as director of The Hyde Collection in Glen Falls, N.Y. Suffolk has curated more than 25
exhibitions and has participated as a juror, panel member or guest lecturer for a variety of artrelated
organizations and programs. He holds a Master’s degree in art history from Bryn Mawr
College, a Master’s degree in higher education administration from Columbia University, and a
Bachelor of Arts degree from Connecticut College.
