Filipino American Artist Directory is an artist-run initiative based in St. Louis, Missouri to connect the broad community of visual artists of Filipino heritage living and working in the United States. It aims to increase the visibility and recognition of Filipino American artists through an online archive and annual publication for students, educators, curators, and collectors, as well as organizing events and exhibitions throughout the country.
The project was founded in 2015 by Janna Añonuevo Langholz, inspired by the book The Decolonized Eye: Filipino American Art and Performance by Sarita Echavez See, available through the University of Minnesota Press.
