Alumni Spotlight: Lindsay Lisanti ’22 (B.A. in Art and B.A. in Theater)
Posted May 31, 2022
What did you study at Otterbein?
I graduated from Otterbein in 2021 with a B.A. in Theatre and Art History. I started as an Art History minor, and declared my Art History major in my Sophomore year.
Where are you now? What is a typical day on the job or in the studio like?
I am currently the Education Coordinator at the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center (MAC) in Worthington. A typical day at the MAC really doesn’t exist, but I work with Education, Programming, and Marketing to give a scope of the type of tasks I am assigned. A day could consist of helping with an install to an upcoming exhibition, working with instructor to create a schedule of classes to put on sale, crafting a newsletter to send to our patrons, making social media content, and anything else generally programming related!
How did Otterbein, and/or the Art and Art History Department, help prepare you for your job? How did your education help you succeed?
My Otterbein education certainly set me up for success at my current position! I participated in work study for the Art and Art History Department for 3 years digitally accessioning and cataloging for the Frank Museum of Art. I learned lots of useful skills like art handling and database management that I use at my current position when installing exhibitions. Janice Glowski was an excellent mentor for me during my time at Otterbein and taught me so many useful things about museum and gallery operations. Amy Johnson was my faculty advisor during my virtual internship with the Cultural Arts Center during my senior year at Otterbein. That internship was an experience that gave me professional connections that lead to my current position in the arts, and connected me with so many local artists, which has been vital for me at the McConnell Arts Center.
