Pam Rorke Levy grew up in a family of designers, architects, and artists, and much of her professional life has been focused in the arts. She studied Art History at Swarthmore College, and museum curatorship in the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Since earning her graduate degree at UC Berkeley’s School of Journalism, Ms. Rorke Levy has written, produced, and directed a wide range of films and TV programs, many on subjects at the intersection of art, culture, and history. She created and produced the first three seasons of SPARK, the multi-platform arts program on KQED, and has served on the boards of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, the Bay Area Video Coalition, and Z Space Studio. Both of her daughters are working artists and graduates of San Francisco’s School of the Arts. Ms. Rorke Levy is also an avid sailor and lover of classic wooden boats, an art form in their own right.
