Lucy Zhang is a junior at Pitt studying Studio Arts, Anthropology, and Asian Studies. Originally from the greater Philadelphia area with roots in Beijing and Hebei, China, their practice is heavily influenced by being first-generation Chinese American, exploring the emotive realities of memory, family, and cultural placement. Their process is intimate as it looks inward toward past personal and cultural history, politically engaged as these are reckoned with in the present.

Lucy's work has been included in Chester County Art Exhibitions, the St. Francis Art & Music Festival, as well as Pitt’s Art of Diversity Showcase. This past year, they worked on an ongoing series of translations of their father’s poetry through the FHC Creative Arts Fellowship.

Cheyenne Degiglio is a senior at Pitt majoring in Psychology, minoring in Studio Arts and Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies, and pursuing a certificate in Global Health. This past year, Cheyenne worked on a project through the FHC Creative Arts Fellowship. Originally from central Pennsylvania, her practice is heavily influenced by her experience of growing up in rural Appalachia.
