I am excited to join the Art To Change The World board because:
- I feel it is important to provide a diverse range of artist a platform for expression.
- I believe art and culture holds the potential for deeper conversations. I will offer a youthful voice with a different perspective on many issues.
- I come from a long line of artist and have seen first hand the power of art to make meaningful connections and inspire change.
- I am excited to surround myself with people who are passionate about art and social justice. Roseville, Minnesota
