I am an artist and actor working in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Self-trained and motived, I’ve recently shared my debut photography exhibit with the acclaimed multi-disciplined artist Bob Haozous at El Museo Cultural. My work caught the eye of representatives for the Ningbo Museum of Art in Ningbo, China, where I will be an artist in residency this September. There, I will work on a documentary that follows a transcultural creative exchange between Native American and Chinese histories, traditions, and points of view.
While my living amenities will be accounted by for by the residency, I will need additional funds to make this documentary come to life. I’m honored to have received this extraordinary opportunity to share my vision internationally and to inspire ambitious goals for people both within and outside of my community. The documentary will be premiered with the first exhibition I have upon my return to the United States. Your contribution, however large or small, is a significant help in realizing my project. Please help me realize my excursion to China and vastly expand my horizons as an emerging artist.
Thank you with the utmost respect,
Robert I Mesa
