Thrilled to be chosen as a mentor with the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program. I have been paired with Maria Linan, to offer her one-on-one support in the sustainability of her creativity.

Gracias to the New York Foundation for the Art (NYFA), the Ford Foundation, NALAC, Say Si and all other partnering organizations and collaborators.

About: Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program pairs immigrant artists working in all disciplines with artist mentors who provide one-on-one support for their mentee, guiding them to achieve specific goals and providing them with broader access to urban cultural centers through an exchange of ideas, resources and experiences.

NYFA’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program is the only known program of its kind in the United States, and has provided close to 200 NYC-based immigrants with mentorship, community, and exposure for their work since it was founded in 2007. The New York program includes sessions in Visual/Multidisciplinary Art, Performing and Literary Arts, and Social Practice.
