Sugar Elisa Brown

Ms. Brown resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her daughter and husband. She enjoyed a successful career as a contemporary art dealer and gallerist in Los Angeles for over ten years working closely with private and non-profit arts institutions to place artwork, oversee gifts and arrange public traveling exhibitions. 

Her history in the arts and the cherished time spent with her daughter as a working mother provides a particular affection for public broadcasting and its potential impact on the lives of children. Ms. Brown is deeply grateful for the opportunity to carry out Frieda Berlinski's wishes and shares her passion to support free, easily accessible, quality programming and community outreach.
