New Deputy in Town!
(And yes, she does get a badge (of a printer) with that!)
WELCOME to our new Deputy Director, Jessica Pierotti!
Jessica is an interdisciplinary artist, photographer, and educator who's lived in Chicago since 2010. She received her BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology and her MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. In the nonprofit world she's worked with the Chicago Perch, Chicago Artists Coalition, and is one of our own former Lab Assistants. She's also, by the way, been working here at the lab since LAT was founded back in May of 2012 (hence the birthday party/fundraiser coming up on Saturday!). We're thrilled to have someone so savvy and so dedicated to the Chicago arts community joining the long haul team. Come to the fundraiser to meet Jessica yourself!
