ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE
Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The FAC Museum hosts Artists in Residence. During their residency, they will be available for class visits, workshops, and special projects with students and faculty.

Anna Tsouhlarakis (Diné/Creek/Greek) works across various media including sculpture, installation, video and performance art. She describes her work as a continued interest in building conceptual connections between seemingly disparate subjects by combining them to become the tool for deciphering as well as interpreting her own familial narratives. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College in Native American Studies and Studio Art, and her Masters of Fine Arts degree from Yale University. She was an art resident at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in the summer of 2002. Her work has been curated into exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now, a traveling exhibition organized by Crystal Bridges Museum. Her residency will take place August 19, 2019 – May 17, 2020.
