“We really, really valued your creativity, collaborative spirit, and professionalism -- and also your flexibility (and patience) -- throughout this new process for the museum. Everyone loved your designs and the digital hashtag mosaic was unbelievably unique and popular.”
Curator of the Collection and Exhibition Program
The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
Olivia is recognized as a cultural leader, arts influencers and tastemaker whose work and agency impacts and inspires the creative, educational, social landscape of the Museum.
Similar to Isabella Stewart Gardner herself, Olivia approaches her work with a default sense of freshness, creativity, and outside-the-box thinking so needed in an institution such as the Gardner; in fact for Olivia, there is never a “box” holding her back.
Henry James once described Isabella Stewart Gardner as not just a woman, but a “locomotive.” Similarly, Olivia is at once full of energy and determination but also incredibly professional and polished. For me, her contagious enthusiasm for bringing individuals together through art and aesthetic experiences in new and exciting ways provides a refreshing break from museum programming norms. She continuously goes beyond the expected and challenges herself and others to perform at the highest level.

“I have to say what a beautiful job you did working on ARTcetera this year. You're really a wonderful delight to work with, and pulled together a fabulous collection for the event. ARTcetera has so much history and has contributed so much to us over the years, but you made it seem seamless to get over 200 pieces of beautiful art. ”
