Meet the Coordinators


Lillian Szugyi

Lillian Szugyi recently joined the West Seattle Art Walk to share her skills as a designer. Her design process takes a human-centered approach, continually engaging with the community to understand their needs and goals, in order to produce a smooth and memorable Art Walk experience.

She wears many hats and is currently responsible for: communicating with merchants, artists, and local media; researching and delivering best practices guides; creating organizational processes; producing content on social media channels, and updating the website. On Art Walk nights, you can catch her talking with artists, snapping photos, and posting to Instagram in real-time.

Lillian hopes to grow the Art Walk program to new heights and build up the arts community in West Seattle.
