Diane Sipos is thrilled to join the Virginia Robinson Gardens as its new Superintendent. She brings extensive experience overseeing major organizational and programmatic initiatives in the non-profit sector, higher education, and arts institutions. Previously, she served as Director for the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art - Southern California Chapter, an educational arts institute. She provided strategic leadership to the organization since its early inception, forging partnerships with institutions across both public and private sectors in advancing the organization’s mission. She created a program that serves a Title I school in LAUSD, implemented scholarship programs, created educational programs for design professionals and the general public, and organized travel tours of notable architecture and landscapes. Under her helm, the organization saw its membership grow and expanded its audience nationally and internationally with its expanded online programming and digital library. She has a Master’s in Public Administration from USC.
A native Angeleno, Diane enjoys traveling with her family, and hiking, and her favorite spot is sitting by the Tuolumne River in the High Sierra in Yosemite National Park.
