Art Student Joins Women’s Center Staff

By Madelina Nuñez

MadelinaHi everyone! My name is Madelina Nuñez and I am majoring in Studio Art and minoring in English with an emphasis in Writing. I am a conceptual artist dealing with issues of Latina identity and Cuban-American history. Before coming to the Women’s Center, I worked as a Gallery Assistant at the UMKC Gallery of Art for two years. My other experience includes the Nelson-Atkins Mellon Curatorial Fellowship during the Summer of 2014, an internship with ALIVE Magazine St. Louis,  and Design Editor for Number One Magazine. I also write a blog called Latina Lives which is hosted on Tumblr. Outside of work, I enjoy being on my bicycle and exploring what Kansas City has to offer. I am also a huge coffee fanatic and am definitely capable of making myself cry from my own jokes. With my time at the UMKC Women’s Center I hope to get to know everyone who walks in and to help support and encourage them in any way possible. I am very excited to be here and cannot wait to get to know more of the talented women here at UMKC!
