Featured Alumni

Anna Zeitlin - Artist, Milliner, Designer

"Abintra fueled my curiosity and gave me the drive to pursue my areas of interest."

Anna graduated from Abintra in 2001 and went on to attend Hume-Fogg Academic High School in Nashville. She received her Bachelor's degree from Columbia College Chicago, where she studied film and video. During her college career, Anna also studied abroad, spending time at Dublin City University and Paris American Academy.

Anna's current list of roles and activities is extensive. Anna co-founded and coordinates Arts & Music at Wedgewood/Houston, a free monthly art and music walk that recently placed in the Best of Nashville reader's poll. At Zeitgeist Gallery, Anna helps curate shows and works with artists and buyers; she also maintains the website, social media, and blog. Anna also coordinates Fashion Happening Nashville, an event that spotlights local designers. Through all her responsibilities, Anna continues to design and make hats for her line Fanny and June, which have been worn on the TV show Nashville, on the runway, and at Steeplechase.
