Michelle Raccone, born & raised in Connecticut, received her Bachelors of Arts with a concentration in Sculpture from Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York. As a traveler and avid nature lover she relocated to Colorado for many years to ski and explore. Eventually, Michelle's adventures landed her back in Connecticut near family and where she would be first introduced to the Steel Yard by her sister (who took classes there previously). Initially, as a volunteer, sweeping and organizing, Michelle enthusiastically jumped in and excelled at each opportunity the Steel Yard offered. Since then she has assisted in numerous Public Projects installments, fabricated a bicycle rack for the United Way '211' and was then hired part-time in the fall of 2016 as the Steel Yard's Studio Assistant. When she is not hiking with her two dogs and chillin' with her cat, Michelle plans on taking courses in every department at the Steel Yard, helping students, artists and volunteers in any way she can. And in any spare time, she plans on continuing to pursue her own sculpture with hopes of having her own studio, relocating closer to Providence and contributing to her new community!
