Enzina Marrari joined Rasmuson Foundation in February 2019 after 15 years of working for government and nonprofit organizations in Alaska. Originally from Chicago, Enzina moved to Anchorage in 1999 in search of adventure and wonder. She has served as grants manager for Access Alaska, director of education for Planned Parenthood of Alaska, and adjunct professor at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Most recently, she oversaw all aspects of the 1% for Art program as curator of public art for the Municipality of Anchorage. She is passionate about creating opportunities for engagement and paths toward community connection.

Enzina holds a master’s in art from New York University and continues as an active artist. She is a two-time recipient of the Foundation’s Individual Artist Award, including a fellowship in 2017. Among other recognitions, she received a career opportunity grant from the Alaska State Council on the Arts in 2013 and a project grant in 2011 from Radical Arts for Women. She also enjoyed artist residencies in Argentina and Ireland.

Enzina currently serves on the Municipal Arts Advisory Commission and as board chair for Momentum Dance Collective. In 2018, she was recognized as one of Alaska’s Top Forty Under Forty emerging leaders through the Alaska Journal of Commerce.

Enzina also enjoys volunteering, traveling, and practicing yoga.  She lives by the belief that each person has the power to positively impact the world.
