Friday Five with Jill Bokor of Salon: Art + Design

This week we're talking to art, design, and philanthropy lover Jill Bokor, who is the Executive Director of Salon: Art + Design.

For over thirty years, Jill Bokor has combined her love of art, design, and philanthropy with her entrepreneurial skills. Her publishing experience began at NEW YORK Magazine, where she served as publisher and editorial director of Art + Auction from 1984-1999. Once the company acquired I.D. Magazine, it was added to her portfolio as well. Jill was also Group Publisher of the Design Group at VNU (now Nielsen), responsible for such titles as Architecture and Interiors magazines, as well as publisher at Art + Antiques Magazine, and consulted on an art and design boutique for Louise Blouin Medi. From 2004-2015, Jill co-owned a gallery in Great Barrington, MA showcasing 20th century works on paper and contemporary regional art, along with fine contemporary jewelry. Currently, she serves as the Executive Director of Salon: Art + Design, New York’s most exciting and prestigious art and design event, a position that she’s held for the past 8 years. This year’s event will take place November 14-18. Salon gives Jill the opportunity to combine all the skills acquired in her curatorial, philanthropic, and business lives. Today she’s sharing five of the most influential things in her own life. Photo: Rickey Rhodes for the New York Times
