Courage Fellow

Whitney Toutenhoofd

Whitney Toutenhoofd is member of the third class of Giffords Courage Fellows and a nationally exhibiting art photographer who makes conceptual work about school shootings in America. This year she has participated in shows at the Academy Art Museum, the Spiva Center for the Arts, and the Barrett Art Center, among others. Whitney has also competed in biathlon since she was eight years old. As a gun owner, she feels a personal responsibility to prevent gun violence in her community and on a national scale. For this reason, Whitney joined Colorado Gun Owners for Safety in 2019, where she and other gun owners advocate for commonsense gun laws and reform.
