GREEN BAY – You might recognize their work from around town and online. Maybe you’ve seen the high-contrast portraits by Megan Deprey, the warm colors of Alyssa Lentz’s photography, or the colorful aluminum wire sculptures of Dannah Piippo. These artists have more in common than a talent for expressing themselves through their work. They share perspectives for healing, love and compassion. And they all identify as LGBTQ+.For Pride Month the Green Bay Press-Gazette interviewed nine local artists and learned what inspires them to produce the work they do for the community. Their responses are as unique as their creations.
Featured are two UW-Green Bay alumni—Alyssa Lentz (Elementary Education) ‘13 and Liz Brinks (Spanish & Latin Studies) ’19 and student Kassie Corroy (Art and Design).
