 Alpha Bruton completed her studies in Art Education and the Teachers Credential Program in 1990, at California State University of Sacramento. Upon moving to Illinois, she completed her studies in the Masters of Art in Administration Program at the School of the Art Institute in May of 2001. Formal training in studio art, art education, dance production, theater arts, and art gallery management gives Bruton her foundation as an art administrator.

Community Involvement

In 2002, she served on the committee, for Arts in Health Care, at Oak Forest Hospital. Served as co-chair for Switching Station Artist Lofts Resident Council 2004-2006, and co-chaired the Arts and Cultural Committee, of the East Garfield Park New Communities Program LISC/Chicago. 

Bruton has served two years as a board member of Borderbend Arts Collective, a producer of the Chicago Calling Arts Festival, where local Chicagoans call out to artists in other cities, states, nationally and internationally to engage them in collaborative projects highlighted during Chicago Artists Month in a two-week long festival during Chicago Artists Month. 

She is the Chief Curator for the Phantom Gallery Chicago, where she coordinates exhibitions in alternative venues for installation artists, environmental artists, and conceptual artists to connect the arts with commerce.
