Cassandra Fiorenza is the founder of Collective 131, the first online-only gallery to be dedicated exclusively to emerging and mid-career female artists. After working in the art world over the past few years, Cassandra saw an opportunity to create a space for women in an industry dominated by men. Cassandra graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Art History. Soon after, she took additional courses at Temple University, and has since interned and worked at several museums and galleries in Philadelphia, Boston, and New York. She currently lives in Hoboken, NJ where she runs her online gallery at www.collective131.com.
