Lorie Caval, Weissman School of Arts and Sciences Graduate Arts Administration Network (GAAN), President

Lorie Caval is a New York City-based writer, visual artist and organizer. Lorie is a painter, working primarily in oil, and recently began exploring multi-media and social practice/engagement art. Her work explores the intersections between spirituality, personal power, dreaming and identity. She is a writer (currently blogging on her Travesía Artística [Artistic Voyage]) blog. She is a long-time student of capoeira (an Afro-Brazilian martial art, incorporating movement and music). Drawing on her own experience as a multidisciplinary artist of a multicultural background, she is especially interested in cultivating connections and environments where art, expression and social exchange take place to create new dialogues and opportunities for fostering cultural equity. She is a founding member on the Steering Committee for an arts collective, Queens Creative Solidarity (QCS), which aims to support creative communities and cultural practices in NYC’s most culturally diverse borough.

Lorie is currently an Arts Administration graduate student at Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College in New York City. She has a BA from Hunter College where she studied English (Literatures, Language, Criticism) and Art History. She is an alum of the Innovative Cultural Advocacy Fellowship (2016); a leadership training program with an emphasis on the advancement of cultural equity and social justice through the arts, created by Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI). She also received a professional certificate in Community Arts and Cultural Equity through the program “Community Arts University Without Walls” (CAUWW) at Interamerican University in Puerto Rico (2015), through CCCADI.
