An innovative furniture designer intrigued by textiles, Ms. Aguiñiga muses on the juxtaposition of worlds and what it means be able to say, "A woman made this."
Artists change the world.
In an effort to share artists' work around the globe, United States Artists (USA) and film company City Projects introduce Encounter: USA Fellows featuring video shorts profiling artists and their work. Unique in tone and content, each video provides a glimpse of the creative process.
United States Artists (USA) is a new non-profit organization celebrating the fearless impulse that compels every great artist to create and inspire us to think. USA backs up this belief by awarding 50 of America 's finest artists a grant of $50,000 each year.
In collaboration with filmmaker Phillip Rodriguez , USA Broad Fellow, USA will release a total of 14 video shorts as part of Encounter: USA Fellows. The first eight videos are now live on YouTube and the USA website. Six additional videos will be released this Spring.
