Alicia Prieto

Teaching Artist, Media Lab

I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. At 10 months old my family moved to Mexico City, where I was raised for the majority of my childhood. After 10 years of living in Mexico, my family moved to the United states and settled down in New York City. I am interested in community development and integration with cultural institutions. I have worked at the Brooklyn Museum as a Museum Apprentice, and that sparked my interest in museum education as a potential career. I currently work at the Children’s Museum of the Arts as a Teaching Artist. I attend school and am working on a BA in Advertising Design. I live in Brooklyn and love graphic novels
