Interviews at New York Academy of Art and Chicago
For the past few decades, the Figurative Arts have had few champions in the marketplace like collector Howard Tullman. This Chicago entrepreneur has been buying art for over 40 years and has amassed one of the largest collections of nudes I’ve ever seen. Tullman also supports the arts in several other notable ways. In New York, Howard is on the board of the New York Academy of Art and in Chicago, Tullman has launched a professional digital arts school called Tribeca Flashpoint Academy.
We met with Howard at the New York Academy of Art for an in-depth interview about collecting art, and to ask him a little about both of the schools. Afterwards, we flew out to Chicago to pay him a visit at Tribeca Flashpoint Academy.
