We’re thrilled to welcome long time associate Christel Dillbohner to our Visualist-in-Residence project. She’ll be working her magic here at the ICI until May 18.
Greetings fellow inquirers. My name is Alyssa Loera and I am new to the Institute of Cultural Inquiry. Over the next little while I’ll be acting as the Librarian/Archivist Intern. Currently I am employed as an Archival Clerk for USC while working for my MLIS through Drexel University. It seems I am destined to be completely immersed in the library world this Summer (much to my excitement). I earned my undergraduate degree in International Development with a minor in Film at UCLA, and have done some time in the comic book publishing world. I spend a lot of my extra time reading comic books, cooking, drawing poorly drawn comics, riding my bike around Los Angeles and doing homework.
I am delighted to be at ICI because somehow this place manages to relay these complex notions of art, intrigue, mystery and process all rolled into one fine entity. I look forward to the coming weeks as I know I am to learn more than I can fathom.
As another December 1st event has come to pass, and the last major ICI event for the year winds to an end, I am left to reflect on the passage of time.
Over the course of this past year, I have been truly grateful for all the opportunities that have been presented by the Institute, as well as all of the support that has allowed the events of this year to be successful. I can only hope that the coming year will continue to bring great things.
Looking forward to seeing what 2013 brings to the ICI.
