Liz Laribee spearheaded the founding of The MakeSpace in 2012. While here, she has helped mobilize a series of creative projects in the city of Harrisburg focusing on initiatives that involve creative reuse and community involvement. This year she was appointed an Artist in Residence for the City of Harrisburg, a position through which she is collaborating on a mural arts program with a series of community partners. She has exhibited her work in Harrisburg, in national and international print media, at the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art, and is included in Yoko Ono's personal collection. For the past six years, she has taught reuse methods of art-making in classrooms on the University level, public and private schools, and in after-school programs. She lives in Harrisburg, happily.
