Alejandra Ramirez
Artist, Arts Educator, Arts Administrator,
Alejandra Ramirez-Gonzalez is an Artist, Arts Educator, and Arts Administrator that has been living in the East Bay for ten years. She is an advocate for equity, inclusion, access, and diversity in the arts. She holds a B.A in Art History from the University of California, Berkeley and currently is a Community Representative for the De Young Museum of San Francisco. Alejandra is also a Program Coordinator for Intersection for the Arts, an arts nonprofit that provides people in arts and culture - from artists to educators to administrators to funders - with vital resources to grow. Alejandra’s past work experience includes being part of the Education, Public Programs, and Communications Departments of The Mexican Museum of San Francisco, whose mission is to voice the complexity and richness of Latinx art and culture throughout the Americas. She was Co-Director of The Marigold Project, a nonprofit organization that creates the annual Dia de los Muertos Festival of San Francisco. Alejandra has also had the opportunity to work with Oakland youth through the Museum of Children’s Arts and the Oakland Leaf Organization. Alejandra is a proud Salinas native, child of Mexican immigrants, and a first generation college graduate. During her free time, she loves exploring hidden gems of the Monterey and SF Bay Area, growing her pencil collection, visiting her family while they work at their strawberry farm, and watching virtual concerts because she misses attending live music events in person very much.
