Shannon Ryan graduated from Wheaton College (Mass.) in 2010 with majors in Art History and English. She is currently a first-year student in the Visual Arts Administration at New York University and works in the studio of a decorative designer. She curated two digital exhibitions over the last year and, in the process, became interested in arts organizations use of new media, both practically and theoretically. Working with DISPATCH has allowed her to explore the benefits and implications of an arts journal located within a digital interface, expanding her research on arts organizations deployment of new media.
