Art Siegel studied broadcast journalism and started his career in public television, becoming Production Manager of the TV station in Pittsburgh that produced Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. From there he earned his MBA from the University of Chicago and went on to a sales, marketing and management consulting career in the computer industry, which led him to creating the most widely read online magazine about sales and marketing. Taking early retirement, Art quickly became restless, applying his visual arts, technology and business backgrounds to local non-profit organizations, serving on boards and committees at the Wayne Barton Study Center, Giving Tree, Florence Fuller, the Boca Art Museum, Youth Activity Center, the Boca Children’s Museum, Mizner Park Cultural Arts Association and more than any other, Temple Beth El for the past 17 years.
