Since the year 2000, ArtTable has conducted a Fellowship Program to address the marked lack of diversity in arts employment. The Fellowship provides quality experiences and mentorship to female-identifying graduate students and emerging professionals from backgrounds generally underrepresented in the field to aid their transition from academic to professional careers. Through one-on-one mentoring relationships at select museums and cultural institutions, fellows have the opportunity to work with established leaders and gain exposure to a range of professional activities.

The ArtTable Fellowship Program is partnering this year with the Chrysler Museum of Art (Norfolk, VA); The Laundromat Project (New York, NY), the Museum of Chinese in America (New York, NY); Socrates Sculpture Park (Long Island City, NY); Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center (Oklahoma City, OK); The Arts Student League of New York (New York, NY); LACE, Los Angeles Contemporary (Los Angeles, CA); Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, CA); and The Morgan Library & Museum (New York, NY).

She also interned at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and The Broad. These experiences starkly illustrated how limiting the traditional art world can be, and she has dedicated her efforts to bring underrepresented artists from communities of color to the forefront. “I do this in hopes that by seeing art that engages with their identity, communities of color and queer communities of color will arrive at an understanding that art and careers in the arts is not something that is inaccessible to them.
