Jo Ann’s Story
My Livelihood is making art accessible to lots of different people.
The question most frequently asked is what medium I work in. Because I think I’m funny, I tell people I’m the chief bureaucrat of LUX Center for the Arts. I’ve worked for a variety of non-profit organizations prior the LUX. The commonality for me is trying to make the world around me just a little bit better. Somewhere along the road, that led me to art.
Making art is a perfect conduit for expression. It is a way to communicate that transcends language, age, or ability. Just recently, I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with my husband’s 101-year-old uncle. We planned a day that would easily tire someone half his age! On our list was a tour through the LUX and the Sheldon.
