The Brea Foley Art Program is an initiative created by Soul of Nations to help fulfill the organization’s mission to galvanize artistic zeal among indigenous communities. The Brea Foley Art Program is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating cultural art created by Native American youth.

The Brea Foley Art Program was birthed from the mind of the late co-founder of Soul of Nations, Brea Foley. Although she is no longer with us, her spirit lives on through the consciousness of art. Foley was a firm believer in the longevity of culturally infused artwork and wanted to inspire artistic talent among youth who live in displaced communities. The Brea Foley Art Program is designed to do just that.

The Brea Foley Art Program aims to rebuild cultural self-confidence, challenge personal boundaries, and foster cultural continuity while reflecting artistic diversity. Soul of Nations wants to show the world that our nation’s first people are still here and thriving in the best ways possible. What better way to validate contemporary Native life and strength than through the arts? Soul of Nations believes that art is a universal language that carries the story of honesty, history, and belonging.

The theme of this years’ program was Honor the Earth. All students will now have the chance to be exhibited in form & concept, a contemporary art gallery located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Three artists were selected to travel to New York City this summer to be celebrated at a reception event held at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of the American Indian – New York and to engage in an artist residency project at New York University. Special thanks to the Navajo Nation Museum, First Nations Development Institute, the Jaques and Natasha Gelman Foundation, and the Virginia Ullman Foundation for helping to make today’s event possible.  Also, special thanks to our amazing jury!
