Dr. Phoebe Farris has six intertwined careers, stretching the concept of interdisciplinary and transnational research. She is the arts editor of Cultural Survival Quarterly, a licensed CCR/DUNS art curator/dealer, a registered art therapist, documentary photographer, professor and author.

As an award-winning independent curator, photographer, author, professor and art therapist, Farris explores issues involving race, gender, indigenous sovereignty, Native American studies, the environment, peace and social justice from multiple perspectives. Her books, Voices of Color: Art and Society in the Americas, Women Artists of Color: A Bio-Critical Sourcebook to 20th Century Artists in the Americas and Art Therapy and Psychotherapy: Blending Two Therapeutic Approaches, create dialogues about the intersections of social activism and the arts.

Of Powhatan-Pamunkey heritage with expertise on contemporary Native American art and culture, Farris has consulted for the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of the American Indian and the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian Art and taught at the Corcoran School of Arts.
