Sheetal Prajapati, Principal & Founder

I am an arts professional with over 20 years of experience in the creative and cultural sectors. Before launching Lohar Projects in 2019, I  worked within arts and cultural organizations of all sizes for 16 years - at places like The Museum of Modern Art (NY), Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and Pioneer Works (Brooklyn). - supporting creativity and expression as an administrator, educator, curator, and engagement expert. 

Trained as an arts administrator and practicing as an educator and artist, I bring both a creative and strategic approach to  advising at Lohar Projects with a focus on fostering a collaborative process with clients.

I work with arts and cultural organizations to lead vision and strategy planning, develop public engagement initiatives, and support growth or change.  I also spend time with creative people and artists at all stages in their careers as a mentor, advisor, and professor.  I love working with people, learning together, and bringing creative ideas to life. 

I am based in Santa Fe, New Mexico and work with artists and clients across the country and beyond.
