Barbara Escobar

Vice President

Barbara has extensive experience leading effective communications programs for clients in the U.S. and internationally, from disruptive start-ups to major institutions, including developing media campaigns, advising on partnership and revenue-generating programs, and guiding internal communications and crisis management.

Since joining Resnicow and Associates in 2015, her projects have included the opening of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami’s new permanent home in the Miami Design District in 2017 and its acquisition of a CryptoPunk NFT in 2021; the launch of the experiential art venture Superblue and its flagship venue in Miami; national campaigns for the launch of Frieze Los Angeles and the launch of Frieze Sculpture in New York at Rockefeller Center; and campaigns for the U.S. Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, Sharjah Art Foundation and the Sharjah Biennial, the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO), the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Gordon Parks Foundation, among others. In 2017, she worked with the Wallace Foundation and its grantees across the U.S. to launch and produce a series of editorial and video content to support the foundation’s six-year $52-million “Building Audiences for Sustainability” initiative.

Her previous roles have spanned communications, marketing, and programming, including at Aperture Foundation (New York), where she oversaw communications, media relations, and events for more than 120 publications and initiatives annually; Phillips de Pury (New York); Transformer (Washington, DC); and SUNY Purchase College, where she was adjunct faculty in arts marketing. She received a master’s degree in museum studies from Johns Hopkins University and graduated cum laude from Catholic University of America with a double major in art history and philosophy.
