Eric Zuckerman '03, is the co-owner and President of Pac Team Group, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of retail environments for various industries, including watches, jewelry, eyewear and luxury brands. When thinking about the annual holiday cards and gifts his company was to send, Eric saw a greater opportunity to connect talented artists with this community of professionals whose industries are so deeply connected with art and design. The company decided to start a series where one artist is selected annually to create a unique piece that reflects their individualistic style and artistic interpretation of “the holidays.” The finished artwork is not only featured globally on the Group’s holiday cards along with information on the artist, but select clients are given a framed, limited edition signed reproduced print as well.
