Manish Vora

Manish Vora, who spends his days attempting to "make things happen," made a major career move in 2008 when he left his Wall Street job to launch ARTLOG, a guide to all the latest and best exhibitions, public art, design, technology, and music happening throughout the country. Later, Manish co-founded the "Grey Area" Art Boutique with Kyle DeWoody, a company that "seeks to push the limits of creative engagement and expression through collaboration, installation, and programming." As if this weren't enough, Manish is also the director at Lightbox, a space intertwining technology and art experiences. It's played host to various exclusive events, including Lisa Salzer and Marlon Taylor-Wiles' Lulu Frost and George Frost presentation during this year's NYFW. All in all, we're positive Manish Vora is someone you should know!
