Visionaries 2020 is a series of small gatherings introducing innovators and their personal stories of success. We follow the journeys of three creative “visionaries” as they realize their dreams, break boundaries, and create businesses and organizations that reflect their values and histories. Conversations are moderated by someone close to the featured speaker and reveal extraordinary narratives about starting something new.
We begin with Christina Isaly Liceaga at her Amagansett restaurant, Rosie’s, diving into her career in fashion, sales, Broadway production, and hospitality. Join us for a socially distanced conversation and cocktail reception on Friday, November 12 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM to learn what motivated Christina to create a restaurant based on a beach lifestyle, health, local produce, and family ties.
The format of this event has shifted to accommodate the safety and health of our patrons while continuing to provide creative and impactful content. Capacity is limited.
“Visionaries is an essential series at Guild Hall because it champions creativity, originality and resourcefulness and introduces new ways of thinking about business and the arts. Participants engage with next generation leaders and learn about how they are igniting change in their respective fields.” –Andrea Grover, Executive Director

Christina Isaly Liceaga

Christina Isaly Liceaga is a born and bred New Yorker who takes on every opportunity with the positive, go-getter mind of an athlete and the sensitivity of an artist.
Christina studied Industrial Design and History at Carnegie Mellon, spending most of her free time on the soccer field and basketball court as part of the University’s Division III teams. After graduation she lived in Mexico City, teaching English, learning Spanish, and playing soccer with the women’s national team feeder club. Upon her return to New York, Christina began a career in fashion with shoe designer Nancy Geist of ZeitGeist NYC, and later, Ralph Lauren.
After years in fashion, Christina ventured into new terrain, taking a finance position within her family’s company, OrbiMed, and then running her own real estate development business, Fractal Management, overseeing more than 30 NYC properties.
Christina made her way to Amagansett 12 years ago, and it was love at first sight. She was immediately inspired to create a new type of place to eat, drink, and gather. In 2019, she opened Rosie’s, a full-service farm-to-table restaurant right on Main Street.
She has most recently added the role of Broadway producer to her resume, with her first credit, Jagged Little Pill, earning 15 Tony Award nominations in 2020. She shares her time between Amagansett and New York, and is the proud mother of 5 children.

Guild Hall, one of the first multidisciplinary centers in the country to combine a museum, theater, and education space under one roof, was established in 1931 as a gathering place for community where an appreciation for the arts would serve to encourage greater civic participation. For nearly nine decades, Guild Hall has embraced this open-minded vision and provided a welcoming environment for the public to engage with art exhibitions, performances, and educational offerings. Art and artists have long been the engine of Guild Hall’s activities and the institution continues to find innovative ways to support creativity in everyone.
