Dear Colleagues –

At the end of this week, Michelle Pope will be leaving Evergreen as our Visual Arts Operations Manager. She is taking up an exciting new position as Director of the Lacey MakerSpace.

Michelle has served as Visual Arts and Operations Manager since 2010. She has been a tireless advocate for the arts at Evergreen. In  addition to her stellar work with her staff and our arts faculty, she has helped lead us through two major arts-focused renovation projects in the Arts Annex and Lab II.

Recently, Michelle has served as a Greener Foundations instructor and has helped out with our gallery retrospective and end-of-year virtual galleries. (We joke about the current gallery exhibition show – due to COVID, it has been the least-seen, longest-running show in Evergreen’s history.)

For now, questions about Visual Arts Operations and support can be directed to Peter Robinson (

Please join me in congratulating Michelle on her new job, and wishing her good luck and success in her career!

Sincerely –


Trevor Speller, PhD –- he/him
