Gabé Hirschowitz graduated from the University of Southern California in 2008 with a BA in Communication and Psychology. During her four years at USC, she became very involved with the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and graduated as a member of Lambda Pi Eta: USC Annenberg Honors Society for Communication, Journalism, and Public Relations.
Throughout university, Gabé undertook a myriad of internships, including opportunities at Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, Italian Vogue, Teen Vogue, and BWR Public Relations. Fascinated by travel and discovering new places and cultures from an early age, Gabé’s passion for the arts - photography, fine art, film, theater, and ballet - continues to flourish with her significant work experiences at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) and Leslie Sacks Fine Art, Brentwood. She recently founded COLLECT ART + DO GOOD™, a unifying force for connecting art collecting with philanthropic causes. The official launch occurred in November 2016 at Soho House West Hollywood in collaboration with Simco's Club, benefiting Stand Up To Cancer’s groundbreaking cancer research.
Gabé lives to merge her passion for art with philanthropy to better the world for individuals in her community and around the world. Nothing encapsulates this more than when she founded and chaired a successful fundraising event in February 2015, UNICEF's Next Generation Art Party, in Los Angeles’ iconic community of Venice for UNICEF’s Tap Project, an initiative that provides clean and safe water for children around the globe. The UNICEF Next Generation Art Party is now an annual event in Los Angeles.
In addition to being a member of the Los Angeles Steering Committee for UNICEF's Next Generation, Gabé serves on the Advisory Board of UNICEF's Chinese Children's Initiative, the American Friends of the Israel Museum (AFIM) Associates, as well as teaching art and creative writing to young children at Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services in Los Angeles. She stands as a strong advocate for keeping the arts alive in daily school curricula as well as in everyday life to encourage free expression.
