Welcoming Alyssa Brubaker, Elastic's new Visual Arts Curatorial Resident

Elastic Arts would like to welcome aboard Alyssa Brubaker, our new Visual Arts Curatorial Resident. Please join us in welcoming Alyssa to the Elastic community!


We would also like to thank our first Visual Arts Curatorial Resident, Kim Alpert, for lending her unique vision and talents to the space over the past year. Kim will remain actively involved with the space, with a focus on bringing more intermedia programming to our stage.


Alyssa Brubaker is an independent curator, graphic designer and DJ based out of Chicago, IL whose interests explore the intersections of art and music. She recently curated Design is a Verb at the Evanston Art Center in 2018 and what do rituals do? at Expo Chicago in 2018.


Brubaker is a co-founder of Stylin’ Out Network, a talent collective and community platform that supports and engages with emerging DJ’s, artists and dancers throughout the city. She is currently the Exhibitions Manager at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago and the Director of Design at the Evanston Art Center. Brubaker received a BFA in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA.
