Kyle Kirkegaard

Director Concept Development

Kyle Kirkegaard has a diverse background combining the realms of art and environment, aesthetics and advocacy. Growing up surrounded by art and artists, Kyle naturally gravitated towards a career in the field. She spent years as a gallery assistant and curator while earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Resource Management. Kyle’s work in data analysis, remediation and mitigation strategies led her unexpectedly back to art as an avenue for creating awareness and influencing community stewardship. Her experience with data collection creates a foundation for selecting unique art pieces based on public and private perception of the site and overarching project. Kyle is most at home at the intersection between natural and urban environments. Her focus is combining aesthetically superior art with environmental purposes.
