LOS ARTISTAS Awarded 56th Annual Northwest Emmy® Award

I am very excited to report that our broadcast special ‘Borders & Heritage: Los Artistas’ won a 56th Northwest Emmy® Award on June 8th, 2019!

The program was produced for and aired on the PBS television station KCTS 9 in Seattle. This project was a true labor of love for me. I am eternally thankful to an amazing team with whom I got to work and to the four remarkable artists whose stories we featured in this special.


Meet visual artist Juan Alonso-Rodríguez and poet Claudia Castro Luna as they relate the manifestation of their immigrant journeys to each of their art, folk musician Abel Rocha on keeping the music of the Mexican workers alive, and dancer and choreographer Alicia Mullikin, undeterred by perceived notions of who can be a dancer.
