Lilia Sterling

Artist Programs Manager, Grants

As the Artist Programs Manager, Grants, Lilia serves as the first point of contact for artists around all artist programs, supports the Artist Centered Program Department, and oversees the logistics of the Foundation's grant programs. Prior to joining the Foundation, Lilia spent three years as a Program Officer at a private family foundation focused on child welfare, where she managed that foundation’s grant programs, including programs in many art disciplines. She holds a BA in Art History and Anthropology from New York University and while she is not a skilled artist herself, in her free time she enjoys knitting, baking, traveling, and reading, and is always looking for new and exciting experiences. She is also a passionate supporter of animal rescue shelters, and dreams of one day owning a farm so she can rescue all the dogs.
