Judy Frater

Join us in an informal meet and greet to welcome Judy Frater, who will serve as an Interdisciplinary Artist in Residence on our campus in the spring semester! Following a short presentation, community members will have the opportunity to meet and interact with her. Living in India (mainly in the Kutch region in the Northwest part of India) for 30 years, Judy Frater co-founded KalaRaksha Trust and Museum. An award-winning Ashoka Fellow, she founded the first design schools for artisans: Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya and Somaiya Kala Vidya. Previously, she was Associate Curator of the Textile Museum in Washington, DC.

In the spring of 2022, Frater will teach “Cultural Diversity, Connection, Value and Sustainability – the Role of Hand Craft in India.”
