EMILY ROMIG FASICK
ART EDUCATOR, ARTIST, AND ACTIVIST
Emily has spent over a decade and a half in varying roles in the art and museum fields. Art accessibility is a huge personal mission, and she strives to make the artmaking experience available and enjoyable for all ages and backgrounds. Her work is currently focused in offering programming to the queer community through the Battle Jacket Museum as well as to Veterans, Servicemembers, and their families through the Veterans and the Arts Initiative.
Emily grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, but finds she can't live anywhere without a Korean supermarket. She now lives in Reston, Virginia, with her cats Mushi and Lucky as well as her husband Kevin, who periodically reminds her not to be too precious with her art.
