BFA/MBA hybrid, serial entrepreneur, son-of-a-drifter, Lucas Spivey scrapped his PhD plans and drove across 42 states in the Mobile Incubator - a broadcast studio inside a ‘57 camper towed by a ‘73 ambulance - meeting with thousands of artists, performers, writers, designers, and other cultural entrepreneurs. Born in MN, raised in rural WI, AK, SC and GA, and living between WA and MA, he’s moved almost every year of his life.
Lucas is the founder of Mobile Incubator; founder of the podcast, exhibition and documentary series Culture Hustlers; and founder of the experimental gallery, residency and library known as 17 Cox. Lucas received his BFA in Interdisciplinary Art and Art History, and his MBA in Finance. Since 2009 he's been a consultant and personal mentor for hundreds of artists and organizations. Lucas has developed programs for MIT, Harvard, Ringling College, Boston Center for the Arts, University of St Thomas, University of Washington, University of Wisconsin, the Arts & Business Council, and other institutions.
