About the Artist
Lares Feliciano is an interdisciplinary artist and cultural worker based in Denver, CO. Feliciano uses animation, installation, and collage to create worlds where marginalized experiences are front and center. Her work explores queer identities, mixed-race experiences, and complex expressions of grief and trauma. She holds a master's of fine arts in cinema production from San Francisco State University and a bachelor's in film and American studies from Smith College. She has completed residencies with RedLine Contemporary Art Center and Grand Canyon National Park and was a participant in the Colorado Creative Industries Change Leader Institute.
Feliciano is passionate about the power of the arts to create change and strengthen communities. In 2020, she joined the RedLine staff as Art Grants Manager where she supports artists and organizations across Colorado. Previously, she served as program director for Think 360 Arts for Learning and launched the Artist in Residence program at the Children’s Museum of Denver. Lares believes that everyone is an artist and is on a mission to support creativity in all.
She lives and works in Denver, where she has several projects in development including: Diasporican, a multi-layered storytelling project that uses archival imagery, experimental animation, and oral history to explore the deeply personal and diverse stories that make up the Puerto Rican experience; and Memory Mirror, an immersive installation that invites visitors to explore their relationship with memory through animation, dioramas, and interactive storytelling.
