Virginia Yarboro, Education Intern, is an artist from Goldsboro, NC studying studio art, linguistics, and religion at Middlebury College. She is an avid collector of accents and children’s stories from around the world. By investigating imagery closely tied to childhood—especially wallpaper patterns and children’s book illustrations—Virginia aspires to maximize the potential of nostalgic art to engage with viewers. A master of playlist-making and Pokemon, she gets inspiration from Madeline, bookshelves, clothing, pixellation, embroidery, places of worship, and avocados. Ten years from now, you may find her illustrating books or farming sheep. Hopefully both.
