Filipino American Artist Directory is an artist project and initiative to connect the broad community of artists with Filipino heritage living and working in the United States, particularly in underrepresented regions within the Midwest and South. We aim to increase the visibility and recognition of Fil/Am artists by becoming an online and print resource for students, educators, curators, and collectors, as well as a confluence for artists to connect with other artists and writers.

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.

Who we are:

Founder/Editor: Janna Añonuevo Langholz

Advisors: Eileen R. Tabios, Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza

Contributors: Matt Manalo, Pamela Ybañez

Friends and affiliate organizations: Epekto Art Projects, Photoma

Our mission:

  1. To promote and support Fil/Am visual artists across the United States, especially those in underrepresented regions including the Midwest and South.
