about studio curatorial special projects

Stacey Reason received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Murray State University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in December 2010. After Murray, she moved to Louisville, KY to co-found the Louisville Artists Syndicate, a artist-led initiative to develop opportunities for artists in Louisville in partnership with the Louisville Visual Arts Association. In May 2015, she earned her Master of Art in Curatorial Studies and Master of Public Administration in Non-Profit Management with high merits from the Office of the Dean of Urban and Public Affairs. During her tenure at the University of Louisville, she assisted in many major projects, most notably a curatorial thesis project “Displacement: A Reckoning of Internal Affairs”, a two-part exhibition considering the definition and affects of displacement as interpreted through visual arts occurring in two locations; a financial analysis report of the Kentucky Museum of Arts and Crafts and acquisitioning of the International Honors Quilt by Judy Chicago to the Department of Art and Design at the University of Louisville. She was the Director and Licensee of TEDxUofL 2015, a TEDx conference held on February 28, 2015 on the theme of "Interconnected" and currently serves on the Commission of Public Art, a mayor-appointed advisory board to the Louisville City Council. Living between Puebla, Mexico and Louisville, her focus has always been integrating art into public policy, developing the role of nonprofits in the community, and advocating for the treatment, funding, and development of visual artists in Louisville.
