Contact person: Lin Hightower
I am a professor at Kennesaw State University in Atlanta with an MFA in Fibers and doctorate in Art Education. I have served as an artist and art product designer for low-income artisans in Turkey, Nepal, India, Thailand, Egypt, Morocco, and Peru. My product designs expanded artisans’ sales markets while preserving their indigenous art techniques and cultural heritage. I have received three Fulbrights for work in this area. I have designed and taught courses at universities abroad to expand my work and make it sustainable.
