Emily Bianchi graduated from Beloit College in 2012 with a B.A. in Anthropology and a minor in Museum Studies. After graduating, she worked as a registrar at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center where she worked closely with components of dismantled artist-built environments as well as artist-built environments in situ. This experience informed her interest in cultural heritage sites that reveal local, untold histories. Through her studies in the Material Culture and Public Humanities program, Emily will examine the many considerations surrounding the preservation, funding, interpretation and programming necessary for these sites to retain the significance they deserve.
