Lydia Giangregorio - BFA 2021

May 8 - August 31, 2021

BFA Studio Art - Painting, Commonwealth Honors College

Lydia Giangregorio grew up in Gloucester, MA. Her deep experiences growing up by the ocean continue to influence her artwork, which explores social connections and ecology. Lydia’s goal is to make art that serves a meaningful role in our everyday lives; her BFA Thesis project involved gathering fabric from friends, family, and community and making quilts that are lent out for people to enjoy and use in their everyday lives. Some experiences with the quilts are recorded through a living digital archive while the majority of experiences happen in the moment and are woven into the fabric of the everyday. Lydia currently teaches art to children and hopes to continue her practice through illustration, quilting, and public art projects.
