Lilly Preston

Managing Director & Executive Producer

As Managing Director of Bluecadet’s New York City office, Lilly brings a passion for discovery and history to her work as an executive producer specializing in large exhibition projects for cultural institutions.

Lilly takes a hands-on approach as a managing director and executive producer, with a focus on compelling storytelling and a passion for large, unconventional exhibitions and installations. When she’s not designing multi-platform media solutions to engage and educate museum visitors, Lilly is educating students of her exhibition design course in the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where she also founded the ITP Innovation Lab, a 4-week summer course focused on re-imagining exhibits for museums and public spaces.    

Lilly graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in Anthropology and a Certificate in American Studies. Her senior thesis focused on history, tradition, and tourism in the pottery community of Seagrove, North Carolina.
