Amyko Ishizaki Hailing from Eugene, Oregon, Amyko Ishizaki is a proud Art History Graduate of Boston University. She is a professional dancer with Kairos Dance Theater, Personal Assistant and Community Organizer for Cambridge City Councilor Nadeem Mazen, and co-founder of Art City Cambridge. Her love for art has always guided her life decisions, and she hopes to brighten the world by supporting and celebrating artists and their work wherever possible. She plans to make Art City Cambridge it’s own non-profit in the coming year, to continue this grassroots movement and expand its outreach to all sectors of the city in many forms of installations and events throughout the year. Art City Cambridge hopes to become a glue that will connect the residents, visitors, students, and artists of Cambridge to the art that inspires and moves them. She welcomes you to be involved! This is our city, let’s cover it in art!
Emily Falcigno A proud graduate of Skidmore College, Emily Falcigno sings the school’s motto, Creative Thought Matters, from the rooftops! She is always finding ways to contribute to the Arts community. In 2004, her event “SHOW” gave emerging artists a place to show and discuss their work, and gave to some their first exhibition listing. In 2012 she started a small gallery in her Boston office
space to exhibit works of local artists. As a photographer, she has worked for the wildly imaginative Figment Festival, and the esteemed Independent Film Festival Boston. Emily’s ingenuity and interest in video led her to become the “Weird Ideas and Media Assistant” for Nadeem Mazen’s City Council campaign in 2014. Emily realized that with lots of teamwork and perseverance, anything is possible. With the Art City Cambridge team, she is excited find new ways to advocate for artists and to help build a sustainable creative economy.
