Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn has helped shape the art world both directly as curator of three art galleries and indirectly as the host of salons where artists of all stripes have met and begun surprising collaborations. Greenberg Rohatyn studied art at Vassar and NYU before becoming a private curator and advisor, making connections between prospective patrons, including hip-hop legend and filmmaker Jay-Z, and up-and-coming artists. She continued to forge such connections through her salons, and nurture and advise artists whose potential she recognizes. Her gallery, Salon 94, has three locations and is known for showcasing artists of wildly different styles and backgrounds; Greenberg Rohatyn is known for seeking out artists for the variety and range of their work. She chairs the board of Performa, a performance art biennial, and is part of the selection committee for the Frieze New York Art Fair. In 2014 Artfair named her one of the 25 most important women in the art world.
