Rich is an artist and educator living in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. A varied background in art and cultural history reflects an interest in architecture and urban development and the way in which people react to the world around them. A proud native of Cleveland, he has always paid close attention to the re-use of old infrastructure. His graduate essay "New Art in Old Buildings: The Blue Collar White Cube" explored ways of displaying contemporary art in old space. Rich began teaching art to children by touring them around the galleries of the Cleveland Museum of Art. His interests led him to Fordham University in the Bronx. Graduate studies back in Cleveland followed, but he was lured back to New York by his eventual wife. He began work in the Brooklyn Museum's Education Department, and freelance work followed: the Educational Alliance Art School, Cathedral of St. John the Divine; Kentler International Drawing Space, Lefferts Historic House in Prospect Park, and as a tour guide through the Brooklyn Navy Yard. He has recently taken a step back from his own tour company, Gotham SideWalks, to concentrate on his own art and young family.
