Philadelphia, PA

Zoë Rayn Evans (she/her) is a graduate of Temple University, where she studied Communications and Art History. She has worked in both the commercial fine arts, as well as non-profit sectors. Notable projects include; the 2016 Democratic National Convention's Truth to Power activation, An Immigrant Alphabet public art installation, (DIS)PLACED Philadelphia, The West Philadelphia Community Archaeology Project, and Friends of the Rail Park’s community archive.

She currently handles Collaborative Programs at the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, leads programming and special projects for Friends of The Rail Park, and is the Founder of Caldera Magazine.  

The intersections of curatorial programming, placemaking (or keeping), community, and social justice have been at the forefront of her professional interests for as long as she can remember.  Zoë believes, wholeheartedly, that art and design, in all its various forms can serve as the catalyst for major, real, explosive change.
