Barbara A. Bianco, PhD joined our team as our Operations Associate in March 2018. Get to know more about her:
How did you get connected with The LP?
Through ReServe, a program that connects nonprofits and public agencies with professionals age 50+ who want to deepen their engagement with– and use their skills to support– causes of importance to them.
How has The LP changed the way you look at / think about art?
It has introduced me to work I would not have discovered on my own.
What is one of your favorite hobbies?
I have a garden.
Can you tell us about an artist or project that has inspired you?
REPOHistory’s wonderfully ambitious sign project in Lower Manhattan, from 1992. Think: Urban wayfinding with histories that have been overlooked or forgotten.
In what neighborhood do you currently live in?
What is your favorite…
Manny Kirchheimer’s Stations of the Elevated, a documentary about graffiti-covered subway cars, circa 1980, set to music by Charles Mingus and Aretha Franklin.
Where do you do your laundry?
In the basement of my building.
In your opinion, why does art matter?
It’s a human (and humanizing) endeavor.
