She graduated from Michigan State University in 2017 with an MA in Arts and Cultural Management—Museum Studies.

(EM)power (EM)brace (EM)body, our Fall 2022 Selections Online Exhibition includS artists whose work explores concepts of bodies from social, political, and psychological points of view. Artworks included consider the body as a site for liberation, reclamation, or empowerment. From body autonomy to traditional constructs of beauty and gender, works about the body can be deeply personal and/or challenge, dismantle, and speak to larger societal structures.
