Our panelists will be –

Larry Weru
BA ‘14 with degrees in Studio Art and Biological Science. App designer and web development consultant.

Larry is a digital storyteller exploring how information design, data viz, and narrative rooted in science can help build a more just and sustainable world.

Kathryn-kay Johnson
BA ‘16 – currently MFA candidate for the Graphic Design program at Yale

Kathryn-kay Johnson is a digital media and video artist. She utilizes appropriated media from contemporary advertising culture, along with text, fabric, audio, video, and digital fabrication processes to develop a sensorial fictive placemaking that is rooted in African Diasporic mythologies and a womanist perspective. Her work gives voice to the powerful, inarticulable, contradiction-filled crises and delights of the human experience.

Brittany Gress

Brittany is a visual artist who specializes in social design and community innovation. Her passion for the fine arts fuels her work with local nonprofits to create meaningful projects that question, uplift, and empower the community.
