Marsian De Lellis - At-Large Representative
Marsian De Lellis is an interdisciplinary artist who has resided in Mideast Los Angeles since 2006, and Silver Lake, Region 6 since 2012. Their work memorializes obsessional lives. They have served on selection committees for LA County Arts, REDCAT, and the Puppet Slam Network, as well as on the boards of UNIMA-USA and The LA Guild of Puppetry. Marsian is passionate about LGBTQ+ advocacy and harm reduction. In the 90s they organized rallies in Massachusetts, which led to the nation’s first anti-discrimination law for LGBTQ+ students. They have volunteered at needle exchanges in Boston, Chicago, New York, and Providence. For the remainder of the term for which they are filling a vacated seat, Marsian will continue to serve on the Urban Design and Preservation Committee and push for progress on accessible sidewalks, protected bike lanes, and humane dignified options for the unhoused.
