Trustee, Frick Collection
Ayesha Bulchandani began her career as an entrepreneur with a focus on fashion accessories under the label Soul & Accent Designs, New York. However, since 2010, she has grown more committed to philanthropic endeavours and been instrumental in pioneering initiatives in education, providing students and young professionals from diverse backgrounds the opportunity and exposure to the visual arts and classical performing arts professions. As a trustee of the Frick Collection, she launched new initiatives for paid graduate and undergraduate internship programs and educational dance and music performances. Her focus has been on using harmony in music and visual art programs to build bridges in creating a world of understanding between diverse religions and faith groups. Bulchandani is also an avid collector of religious Russian Icons; Contemporary Indian art and antiquities; Baroque paintings: namely Neapolitan-Spanish and Flemish Baroque works; as well as 17th and 18th century French and Italian works.
