Publicist

At Snap Scene, creativity is our passion. Frustrated by the limitations of most experiential exhibition spaces and the lack of variety, Snap Scene's founder Iya Thomas was dead set on carving out a creative space for people to enjoy.  

Snap Scene is the first experiential exhibition space that is truly accessible and reflective of the times. Patrons are provided with visuals they can identify with and relate to regardless of race, size, age or ability.
