Alma Minerva Carrillo López

Program Director, The Steel Yard

Prior to joining the Steel Yard in 2008, she studied Government and International studies at the University of Notre Dame and the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. Alma also holds an advanced degree from Brown University in Public Humanities and Culture. Born in México, she moved to the United States in her early teens. This life changing experience led her to focus her work on issues affecting immigrant communities. That, along with the lack of representation of Latin@s in museums and galleries she observed after college, inspired her to participate with community organizations that support issues of immigration, arts, youth, and women’s reproductive justice.
