Alyssa Lombardi holds a B.A. in Two-Dimensional Studies with a focus in Arts Management 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.
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. In her spare time, Alyssa enjoys yoga, fishing, spending time traveling with friends and family, attending art events, and painting in her home studio.
With a creative eye and an entrepreneurial spirit, Alyssa is excited to join The Fine Arts Association to help with internal and external communications.
Alyssa will begin her role with The Fine Arts Association on May 13, 2019. We are very excited to welcome her to our team!
