In 20 years now of exhibitions, SITE Santa Fe has helped launch the careers of hundreds of emerging artists from around the world.  Recently, the contemporary art center in the Santa Fe Railyard has started taking under its wing young artists close to home.  Joanne Lefrak, SITE's Director of Education and Outreach, describes the SITE Scholar program, designed to help students from colleges and universities in northern New Mexico transition into the professional art world.

In this longer version of the interview, Joanne Lefrak speaks in greater detail about the program and discusses the March 27 inauguration ceremony for the newest group of SITE Scholars.
