Ryan and Elizabeth Pozzi
Ryan Pozzi is the founder of the Nebraska Writers Collective and of the Apollon Art Space – both nontraditional arts organizations serving eastern Nebraska communities. Working as a nonprofit executive in a variety of capacities for more than a decade means that, before moving to the other side of the table, he wrote more grant applications than he cares to remember.
Elizabeth Pozzi is the owner of Oracle Art Supply, local art materials retail shops in Omaha, Nebraska and in Council Bluffs, Iowa. She’s the real artist in the family with scads of professional experience as a sculptor, a photographer, an installation artist, and a curator.
Together they formed the Pozzi Family Foundation in 2019, one year after the passing of Elizabeth’s father Mark, to support arts, culture, and community growth projects in Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois where the family has deep roots.
