Michael Rushmore is Co-Manager of the CFG with Pia Chakraverti-Wuerthwein. He is a senior Political Science major from Chicago, IL/London, UK. He took a gap year to curate a few art exhibitions and write a book about street art. Street art is kind of his obsession. If he could look at one painting for the rest of his life, it would either be Francis Bacon's Study after Velázquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X or something huge by José Parlá.
Pia Chakraverti-Wuerthwein is Co-Manager of the CFG with Michael Rushmore. She is a sophomore with a tentative double major in art history and Spanish. Pia spent last summer as the CFG's Summer Intern helping prepare for this year's exhibitions, and is very excited to continue learning about the CFG and the art world in general. Beyond the CFG, she looks forward to her role as an AMA for Tritton 1W, working on the James House Board, and chilling with her apartment-mates.
Maya Beale is a junior from Baltimore, Maryland majoring in English with a concentration in Africana Studies. Maya is involved in various artistic organizations, including Haverford’s concert series, FUCS, and the bi-college radio station, WHRC. She often thinks about Missy Elliot, and can just as often be overheard in the lobby of Magill Library launching into vehemently extensive defenses of the Kanye West album, Yeezus. Coming to the gallery from an exhilarating bout as a guide and blogging intern at FringeArts (facilitated through the Humanities Center’s Philly Partners program), she is eager to continue being connected to arts presentation within the Haverford community.
Sydney Carson is from the San Francisco Bay Area, California. She is a senior psychology major and a spanish minor (she studied abroad in Seville, Spain last fall) and has been working in CFG since her freshmen year. In high school she fell in love with working with glass and misses being able to make stained, sandblasted, and fused pieces. In her spare time, she enjoys dancing, listening to music, and doing DIY projects on clothes from the thrift store. She is happy to be spending her last year with the CFG team!
Mike Ferrara is a senior art history major interested in contemporary art. He is a co-president of James House, the open student arts space on campus, and is excited to work with fellow CFG staff members there. Mike has been working at the gallery for two years now and his favorite exhibits were And the winner is... and the Fine Arts senior thesis exhibit. When he is not at the gallery, you can find Mike reading comics or throwing a frisbee on Founder's green.
Kelly Jung is a freshman from Seoul, Korea. She is planning on majoring in either political science or philosophy (or maybe both). She volunteered at Korea's national museum as a program coordinator and loved her experience working with young museum visitors and leading interactive activities. Her favorite artists are Klimt and Schiele. She's also interested in journalism and is a staff writer for the Bi-co news. In her free time, Kelly spends most of her time reading, doodling and catching up on tv shows. She's so excited to be a part of the CFG team!
Dylan Kahn is a sophomore from Boulder, Colorado. While he is still developing his future plans, he hopes to consolidate a History of Art major to accompany a French and History minor. Creating art is one of his favorite pastimes, and he studied drawing, painting, and the portfolio arts in high school. Hopper, Vermeer, Caravaggio, and Wyeth are listed among his favorite artists. Beyond the artistic realm, Dylan rows for Haverford's crew team, enjoys cross country running, and feeds his addiction to English dramas. He also prides himself on being a Star Trek and Jeopardy! aficionado. Dylan is thrilled to be returning to the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, and he can't wait to learn more about gallery work during his time at Haverford.
Alicja Kielczewska (pronounced Ah-leets-yah Kiel-chev-ska) is a Junior at Haverford College. Her interests, both academic and otherwise, are varied and have changed as often as the moon tides since beginning her studies at Haverford College. Alicja loves the freedom that Haverford gives its students to explore. Alicja is also an explorer outside of her studies. One of her new favorite activities is low-budget, bare-bones travel. The one thing that hasn't waivered since beginning her studies at Haverford is Alicja's joy of working at CFG and interacting with gallery guests.
Sofia Massaro Tieze is a freshman from Denver, Colorado. She is seriously considering a major in Biology and a minor in Neuroscience. She is a metals artist and actress, and is excited to learn more about the visual arts while working in the CFG. Sofia is also a foilist on Haverford’s fencing team, and a cooking, thrift shopping, and movie watching enthusiast. She is thrilled to be a part of the CFG team!
