We are thrilled to have Liliana Wolking join the team as the senior development manager, events and individual giving. We asked her a few “get-to-know-you” questions—see what she had to say!
Briefly introduce yourself and explain your position at P.S. ARTS.
My name is Liliana Wolking, and I recently joined the P.S. ARTS team as the senior development manager, events and individual giving. In this role, I will manage and execute all components of both the annual events: Express Yourself and the pARTy! Additionally, I will be working with donors and supporters, which I hope will contribute to the overall success of P.S. ARTS.
What book is currently on your nightstand?
BECOMING by Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama is one of my idols, and I was thrilled when she released her first book. I have just started reading it, but I am already impressed by her honesty and graceful storytelling ability. It is very nice to learn more about her journey and it reminds me that she is just a person too—granted she has one big beautiful life.
What is currently the most played song you’ve been listening to?
I have been listening to a lot of Lauren Daigle—her voice is both magical and beautiful. Every time I hear “Look Up Child” I smile and dance! Honestly, I have been listening to the entire album on repeat.
Where is your favorite place to view or take part in art in Los Angeles?
I would say MoCA Los Angeles. I might be a little biased since that was where I began my career in the arts, but every time I visit, I am in awe. I am also really excited that Klaus Biesenbach is the new director. It will be interesting to see what he brings to the table. I am also a huge fan of the Underground Museum.
What famous person, either dead or alive, would you choose to take out for coffee?
Gosh, there are too many amazing options. If I could, I would host a dinner party and would invite Michelle Obama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Maxine Waters, Dolly Parton, Beyonce, Maya Angelo (RIP), Lena Waithe, Oprah, and Tracee Ellis Ross. I genuinely admire how each of these women have lived their lives with passion, grit, grace, and tenacity. As pioneers, they have all broken boundaries and inspired countless women.
