Greetings! Emily Neat (not messy) here! As an intern at the League since January, I’ve been managing our social media accounts and keeping content flowing even when we’ve closed gallery doors, so I like to think I’ve been in communication with you, lovely reader, all along! This job has included creating tutorials and educational videos, being the legs of our mural hunt series, overseeing the creation and promotion of virtual gallery experiences, and more. I studied mathematics at Transylvania University, thinking art was behind me after my high school career. Then, a semester in Italy and a couple of classes with Jack Girard (also an Art League-r) later, my passions were rekindled! I wound up also earning a studio art minor, with a personal emphasis in painting. My long term objective is pursuing an MFA to become an university art instructor myself, though before then, my goal is to travel and teach English in Italy. I love it there so much!
I’m so thankful for my time at the League. It has brought me many formative experiences, opportunities to self-start, and so many cool acquaintances. In fact, my favorite part about working with this organization is being surrounded by fellow artists. We’re all a little crazy! In a creative way!
P.S. in my spare time (which is rare, no matter how hard I try?), I play golf and lead tours at Transy. I also just recently discovered playing “Rasputin” on Just Dance, which I cannot recommend more highly.
