Born in Nanjing, China, and raised in Portland, Oregon, Lianna holds a master’s degree in Museology (Museum Studies) and a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art. Lianna approaches facilitating artist and community collaboration as a way to create art that reflects and shapes what Boise is, what Boise has been, and what Boise can be. She believes that every interaction with public art adds to the growing and evolving story of that artwork, as well as the overarching story of Boise.
