Gordon R. Strain

Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

While theatre is Gordon R. Strain’s bread and butter, art is his jam. His day (and sometimes night) job is as an Associate Professor and Chair of Theatre at Franklin College. A younger shorter version of himself received his BFA from Ithaca College in New York (2000) and MFA in Scenic Design from Indiana University (2006). Gordon designs for theatres in Indiana, Ohio, New York, Chicago, and Bermuda and he also produces art in all shapes and forms.
