This month, we caught up with Eriel Indigo, a graduate of our Theater Department. Eriel spoke to us about her Walnut Hill experience, as well as the evolution of her career as a recording artist, a creative director, and an activist.
We are currently separated by time, space, and circumstance. Yet, we need to continue to engage with one another, even if we do not have the luxury of many of our everyday resources and tools. This is a creative and artistic limitation that should force us to imagine new ways to communicate our ideas to each other and the world around us. Now is the perfect time to explore the truest form of artistic creativity and expression, and let’s make sure we use every channel at our disposal to share that work with the rest of the world. Tag your creative work #walnuthillarts, follow the hashtag, and pass it on.
We know this pandemic has provided a difficult reality for everyone, and artists in particular may be facing very real economic challenges. We want to support you and create a space to share resources. Please update us on what you’re doing and share your contact info on this page.

This month, we caught up with Nicole Hayashi, a 2013 alum of the Dance Department who has explored several different career paths in the nine years since she graduated from Walnut Hill. Nicole currently works for AARMY, a fitness studio, and filled us in on how this new career has transformed her life.
This month, we are pleased to feature two alumni, theater major Ethan Van Ness ’09 and music major Yi Qun Xu ’13, who have taken two very different paths in their post–Walnut Hill journeys . . .
