Smithsonian Institution

The Smithsonian Institution (SI) holds a special place in Chora’s roster of clients: one of Chora’s principals held a senior position there for nearly 20 years. During that time, he raised hundreds of millions of dollars, supervised the renovation of hundreds of thousands of square feet of public space, managed and mentored hundreds of SI staff, and put in place a standard-setting national digital education platform. Chora has remained an active consultant to various Smithsonian initiatives and museums. Most recently, Chora has been involved in the preparation of the strategic plan for Anacostia Museum, the National Postal Museum, and marine conservation exhibitions at the Natural History Museum.
