Filipino American Artist Directory is a participatory artist project and initiative to connect the broad community of visual artists of Filipino heritage living and working in the United States, beginning from underrepresented regions in the Midwest and South. It aims to increase the visibility and recognition of Filipino American artists through an online and annual print resource for students, educators, curators, and collectors, as well as organizing events and exhibitions throughout the country.
The project was founded in 2015 by St. Louis-based artist Janna Añonuevo Langholz after the book The Decolonized Eye: Filipino American Art and Performance by Sarita Echavez See, available through the University of Minnesota Press.
The directory is a member of Common Field.
