RUTH ABRAHAMS, DC CHAPTER COCHAIR

Meet @ruthabrahams_graphic_design✨ "I founded the design studio Ruth Abrahams Design four years ago. The studio focuses on branding, strategic communications analysis, and comprehensive graphic identity design for arts non-profits, museums, consultants, and advisors. I am loving the transition from Director of Design and Editorial at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to a more broadly engaged practice."

On membership: "I’m on the national board so I spend a lot of time thinking about AT! I am particularly excited about the upcoming Benefit Luncheon in New York where Dr. Johnetta Cole will be delivering the keynote speech. Marion Goodman will receive the 2018 Distinguished Service to the Visual Arts Award, presented by Julie Mehretu. I have connected with so many wonderful people through ArtTable, and I look forward to the March 21 MeetAT where I can meet more of you."

A recent art visit: "The Sally Mann exhibition currently @ngadc is a must. It is beautifully installed (my personal passion) and the work is gorgeous, moving and unbelievably powerful. This work is a revelation if you are not familiar with her body of work."🎨 #arttabledc

KAYLEIGH BRYANT-GREENWELL, DC CHAPTER COCHAIR

My current role in the art field is at the nexus of art, museums, and social justice. As a museum educator, independent curator and writer, and advisor to both local and national arts groups I lead programs exploring social change impact through art.

Current roles include: education specialist, National Museum of African American History and Culture; Arts Education National Council, Americans for the Arts; Selection Committee, Halcyon Arts Lab; Contributing Strategist, The Empathetic Museum.

On Membership: I have enjoyed expanding ArtTable DC's diversity, equity, and inclusive practices, especially through the launch of the Faith Flanagan Fellowship. ArtTable's mentorship initiatives make me proud to be a member.

Recent Inspiration? I'm currently motivated by the Halcyon Arts Lab and by Stephen Hayes in particular. His work is profound, intricate, and overwhelming. Everything great art should be. Also a Halcyon Fellow, Georgia Saxleby's "To Future Women" at the Phillips Collection is one of the most unique installations I've seen in a while. It's feminist and futurist all in one.
