Welcome to New SASA Executive Assistant, Corey Loftus!

We are pleased to introduce our first administrative hire at SASA, Corey Loftus. Corey is joining us as an Executive Assistant. She will be working closely with our Founder and Director to manage our workflow and administrative tasks - a vital role that keeps our teams working as smoothly as possible! We look forward to working closely with Corey and hope that this will be the first step in providing more paid roles and improving the work we do in every direction.

A little bit about Corey -

Corey enjoying some vibrant pastimes.

She has both a BA and an MA in Art History, focusing on 20th-century Art of the Americas with research interests in themes of embodiment and epistemology. Prior to her time at SASA she was the Fall 2021 graduate curatorial fellow at the Asheville Art Museum. This role gave her the opportunity to assist with an extensive digitization project of the museum’s Black Mountain College Collection and curate a spotlight exhibition on the relationship between the short-lived but hugely influential college and the regional landscape of Western North Carolina.

She has also worked for a number of museums and non-profits including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, the Barnes Foundation, and the Arthur Ross Gallery. These experiences and her academic work galvanized her interest in the democratization of access to archives, public collections, and scholarship.

While not a conventional ancient studies scholar like many of our team members at SASA, she has an optimistic, can-do attitude and looks forward to learning more about the subject while working with us. Our mission to promote the humanities, increase accessibility to materials, and to preserve and promote ancient studies stood out to her and drew her aboard - proof that SASA’s mission transcends subject areas and that anyone can make a difference.
