Susan Isaacs, is Professor of Art History at Towson University, where she teaches advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses in modern and contemporary art history and theory and is curator for the Holtzman and Center for the Arts Galleries.

She has organized shows for other contemporary art spaces and museums as well, including the galleries at the Gershman Y in Philadelphia. She publishes on contemporary art and artists.
Her collaborator is Dr.Martin Rosenberg who teaches at Rutgers. Dr. Martin Rosenberg (Ph.D. Art History, University of Pennsylvania) is Professor Emeritus of Art History, and former Chair of the Department of Fine Arts at Rutgers-Camden, where he taught a wide variety of courses in 18th-21st century European and American Art, and Modern Architecture. As a feminist scholar he devoted much of his teaching, research, and publication, to contributing to the understanding of women’s contributions to art and culture. He is the author of several books and major exhibition catalogs, as well as numerous articles, catalog essays, and reviews. For over 20 years, he also played a major role in the largest effort ever to transform art education in the United States, an effort catalyzed by the J. Paul Getty Trust. In 1998-99, he served as Visiting Scholar at the Getty Education Institute for the Arts in Los Angeles, an invited position given to one person each year. Dr. Rosenberg has lectured at museums and universities throughout the United States and in China. He has also played a significant role in historic preservation and in commissioning major works of public art. Dr. Rosenberg has organized numerous exhibitions of contemporary art, many with a particular focus on works by women. Two of his exhibitions, organized with J. Susan Isaacs of Towson University, and the staff of the Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts, were national touring exhibitions after being shown at Rutgers-Camden: “A Complex Weave: Women and Identity in Contemporary Art,” which toured to seven sites nationwide in 2009-2013, and “Visions of Place: Complex Geographies in Contemporary Israeli Art,” which begins its national tour in 2019.
