After an extended search, the Washington Art Consortium is pleased to introduce Willow Fox as our new staff member. Fox is an artist, administrator and arts consultant, who previously worked with the 4Culture Public Art program for 9 years. She brings a passion for arts access to her work, and has volunteered with organizations such as Urban ArtWorks, the Ver(a)rt Gallery at The Vera Project, and Art of the City street fair. Along with fellow artist and administrator Debra Webb, Fox developed a presentation and role playing game about public art and social change, where participants take on various characters who are involved in a social practice public art project, and play out the process from conceptual design through implementation and celebration.

Fox's own practice focuses on textiles and performative installations. Her most recent installation was developed in 2014 at an artist residency with the Festival International de Video Danse de Bourgogne. Combining dance, interactive and participatory action with the audience, and an original score with ambient video, the piece explored connections between the ancient transition from matrilineal to patriarchal culture and medieval French mythology. Fox graduated Summa Cum Laude from Cornish College of the Arts in 2007, with a double major in sculpture and video.
