Frontier Fellowship: Jamie Horter
February 16, 2018 - March 18, 2018
Jamie Horter is a rural advocate, community artist, and community coach based in Lyons, NE (pop.851). She created her first public work when she was commissioned at the age of 10 to paint a mural in the elementary hallway of her hometown school. Then and now, her works are inclusive and community centered, often placing rural citizens in the design process as co-creators. Jamie’s work is multidisciplinary in scope and her work is informed by a personal history of eclectic explorations. She has degrees in art and chemistry and experience in working on Capitol Hill, within grassroots advocacy and non-profit organizations, and serving as editor of a small town newspaper. She now works in rural communities in South Dakota and Nebraska, using art to engage citizens in building the future they wish to see.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the people of Green River and learning about the community through their perspectives. What do Green River youth think about their community? I’m interested to hear the youth perspective on their town and explore local intergenerational connections. I’m excited to engage with local artists, share in dialogue, and collaborate on work together. And I’m looking forward to connecting with everyone at Epicenter and getting a firsthand experience of their work in Green River.”
