Luca Gee

The Fulbright University of Bristol Summer Institute on Arts, Activism, and Social Justice

Luca Gee, a rising sophomore at Ohio University, was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. They are currently studying Art History (Honors) with plans to minor in both Studio Arts and African American Studies. They are overjoyed to represent the Buckeye State in Bristol, UK.  When they are not writing poetry or playing alto saxophone, they are probably in the printmaking studio.

A lot of their craft has shifted to becoming political commentary. This coincides with what they are learning in their Art History courses. When they are back home in Cincinnati, you can find them volunteering at the local cat shelter at least once a week. This is one of their favorite ways to give back to the community.

As an Art History (Honors) major, Luca is interested in developing their understanding of art as a means of activism. They look forward to further exploring the intersection visual and performing arts have with social justice at the University of Bristol. They are excited to meet the diverse cast of people both in their cohort and in the local community.
