Quotes in the field

Having worked together on a variety of projects, I’ve always admired Lynn’s enthusiasm for cultural exchange. Her commitment to building long term partnerships with artists in Mexico should be a model for our field. — Joe Randel, Director, ArtesAméricas, University of Texas At Austin, Texas Performing Arts

Lynn Fisher has been a leader in the performing arts for many, many years and her passion to increase knowledge in the United States regarding Latin American artists and their work, especially in Mexico is well known. Way before Latino arts, artists and aesthetics, as well as residencies between the U.S. and Mexico, for example, began to proliferate in both countries, presenters and artists have always looked to Lynn and Frontera Arts to make these projects happen in a respectful and sustainable manner. Thanks Frontera Arts.  We are truly grateful! — Cristina King Miranda, Directora General/ General Director, FMX Festival de México en el Centro Histórico, Mexico City, Mexico
