Georgia Cassimatis ’15

Georgia Cassimatis ’15 (New England, MS in Sustainable Development and Climate Change) was the subject of a second article in the Keene Sentinel about her successful projects encouraging public arts, including ownership of 17ROX, a for-profit loft for artists; running The Friends of Public Art, a non-profit advocate for incorporating art in public spaces; and as a lead volunteer with the Walldogs community mural effort, which resulted in 16 outdoor paintings throughout Keene’s downtown, each depicting a piece of the region’s history. Her efforts have earned accolades, including a 2019 Trendsetter Award from the Business Journal of Greater Keene, Brattleboro, and Peterborough, and now a Ruth and James Ewing Arts Award in the highly competitive Community Engagement in the Arts category.
