2017 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Born in Mexico, Ana Guissel Palma is an artist based in Philadelphia since 1999, originally trained as a muralist since 2002. Ana started art and crafts initiatives aiming to preserve the cultural identities of immigrant groups of Meso American (region and cultural area of parts of Mexico and Central America) descendants, while assimilating the new culture embraced in the Philadelphia area. The art made with the immigrant community has brought them to venues such as the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia Museum of Art, UPenn Museum, and The Kimmel Center, among others.
