About Lucas Livingston

Creator and host of the Ancient Art Podcast
Art Museum Educator

When he’s not busy fighting with the artwork, Lucas enjoys working on the Ancient Art Podcast, which he started in 2006. He’s been with the Art Institute of Chicago since 2002. You’ll frequently find him running through the museum with a herd of people in tow. A few years ago he took up the enjoyable hobby of homebrewing, which you can read all about in his Homebrew Blog. His secret crime-fighting alter ego is a computer geek while moonlighting as tech support for friends and family. Lastly, he currently finds himself having accidentally started a collection of hairless pets, which he sometimes regrets, but then always comes around.
