Shari Lynn Himes

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.

Himes produces and directs film and touring theatre productions illustrating the diverse black experience. She has produced and directed one seven-time award winning short film and has written and staged two plays for Indiana State Museum’s Legacy Theatre. Her play, “Life on the Avenue,” was showcased at the 2004 American Association of Museums conference.
