Przybysz has served as McKissick Museum’s Executive Director since 2011.  In 2015, she curated a national juried exhibition titled Crafting Civil (War) Conversations to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and foster public dialog about race and reconciliation in the region.  Thanks to a Fulbright Research Fellowship in 2015, she investigated post-WWII efforts to revive folk arts and build a national arts industry in Poland.  In addition to her continuing interest in textiles as key to understanding the history of women and performance, she is engaged with emerging craft theory and with the strategies contemporary artists are devising to address social justice issues within the framework of community-based cultural performances.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
