Lucia Rollow was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. She moved to New York City to pursue her BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts.

Finding herself without access to a darkroom after graduating, Rollow worked to create a community space run by artists, a project which grew to occupy a 4,000 square foot warehouse today.

While building the darkroom and her team, Rollow established herself as a local leader through her organizing for Bushwick Open Studios. Passionate about taking the BCD to the next level as a professional arts space, Rollow completed her Masters in Arts and Cultural Management at Pratt in 2015.

She has exhibited her artwork at spaces including Storefront Gallery, Animamus Art Salon, Spread Art Detroit, and Brooklyn Fire Proof Gallery. Her work as an artist and organizer has been featured in publications including Artnet, Hyperallergic, Brooklyn Paper, and Bedford + Bowery. Her video profile was featured in the Square Capital project.
