TEAM GLITTER BOX
Lila Heymann - Owner, Director
Glitter Box N.O. is the latest project for Lila and the Heymann Foundation. With a background in art history and social work, creating a space where community and making merge was a natural progression. More recently, Lila has focused her energy on femme focused artists, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits and Glitter Box has become the home for this endeavor.
Born in Lafayette in the Stone Age, Lila went to college in Baltimore and lived in New Orleans for many years before moving to Washington DC and eventually New York City. These days, Lila divides her time between New Orleans and Charlottesville, VA where she lives with her husband Harold Herz and their 9 year old son, Henry.
Alice McGillicuddy - Shop Manager, Curator
Alice runs the day to day operations of Glitter Box N.O., from working with our inspiring collection of femme artists and makers to curating events and collaborating with our monthly nonprofit beneficiaries.
When she’s not buzzing around the shop like a glittery hummingbird, Alice can be found doula-ing, helping throw a monthly fundraising dance party aka Fundragers, or leading the pod of shiny mermaids that make up Krewe of Mermoux!
Morgan Dixon: Curator and Social Media Marketer
Morgan is involved with curating, event planning and social media marketing for the shop. She tries to keep her eyes open to different political and cultural perspectives to help contribute to Glitter Box as an all inclusive space; from the merch to the content each visitor sees. With experience in the arts and non-profit worlds (Boys and Girls Club, Girls Rock Jacksonville, etc.), she is happy to call Glitter Box her home away from home when it comes to having a safe community space she is so proud to be involved in.
When she is not working her magic at G.B., she fills her days as owner/designer of M.A.D. Nails, painting mini masterpieces; raising her greatest creation,Zoëlle, & of course throwing imaginary glitter over everything.
