Alyssa Lombardi holds a B.A. in Two-Dimensional Studies with a focus in Arts Management and Painting from Bowling Green State University. She recently completed her M.A. (all but thesis) in Arts Administration from The University of Akron.
Previously, Alyssa was a visual arts instructor and worked at various nonprofit organizations in development and marketing roles. She was also a fitness instructor for three years teaching Pilates and yoga. While in Bowling Green, she was a college cheerleader and a part of the first place nationals team in 2014. Remaining heavily involved in her community through leadership, public art exhibitions, and mural installations, she grew a deep passion for community engagement.
Today, Alyssa is an advocate for incorporating accessibility best practices and policies within arts organizations. This stems from having grown up around her brother who is on the Autism spectrum. From Massillon Ohio, she has always appreciated both the arts and the philanthropic community here in Cleveland.
At FAA, Alyssa leads Marketing and Communication efforts to ensure Northeast Ohio residents are informed of what FAA offers to the community. Among the significant responsibilities: PR, media, website design, radio, and much more, Alyssa’s favorite part of her role is learning more about FAA through sharing stories about other individual’s FAA experiences.
She shares her love of art through live painting events and teaching those of all ages and abilities. Alyssa has sold her paintings both nationally and internationally. For fun, Alyssa enjoys yoga, fishing, spending time traveling with friends and family, attending art events, and painting in her home studio.
