Art History & Painting and Drawing
With a passion for Modern and Contemporary Art, Livy Onalee Snyder is graduating in 2019 with a BFA in Painting and Drawing as well as BA Art History, preparing her for her aspiration to work internationally as an independent curator. Her BFA Thesis focuses on the generational gap between materials and ideologies. Her full scale installation will include a variety of medias.
Her achievements include internships at the Black Cube Nomadic Museum, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, Italy, the Denver Art Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. She is also a gallery assistant at the Emmanuel Gallery. In 2018 she was awarded the University of Colorado UROP Grant to create an exhibition for the RTD light rail system in the theme of the Anthropocene. She recently exhibited in a group show at Edge Gallery “Stone’s Throw Away in the Making of Progress” where she addressed the culture of the health and wellness industry in a mixed media installation.
Livy plans to apply for a graduate degree program abroad. Her hope is to follow the vein of experimental art, invest her time in works she truly believes to be innovating, and learn more about the operation of the the museum space as a construct.
