I’m honored to have been asked to paint a portrait of Paul Robeson for the Paul Robeson Legacy Project, in commemoration of the centennial of his graduation from Rutgers University. Paul Robeson’s legacy as a global activist, scholar, singer, athlete, and actor is truly extraordinary. Many thanks to the Zimmerli Art Museum for this opportunity! The exhibition is on view at the Zimmerli until April 28th.
The 2018 Tepper Chair event with Kara Walker and the Rutgers cohort was the culmination of our year-long course focusing on memorials, monuments, and memory within the context of New Orleans' complex history. It was an honor to collaborate with and explore New Orleans with Kara and all fellow members of the cohort, and to be part of this incredibly memorable event.
Many thanks to Colin Ambrose of Estia's for hosting my new solo exhibition, Writers & Storytellers of the East End & Beyond.

Please join us for the opening reception in Sag Harbor and enjoy drinks and appetizers at Estia's on Sunday, April 10th, 4 - 6pm!
Limited edition prints of some of my work are now available at anthropologie online. The prints originally appeared in a limited edition book of paintings and text that I made for the 2015 LA Art Book Fair; each portrait is accompanied by a typewritten excerpt from the author's work that I found particularly meaningful and resonant. Many thanks for making this happen zoe bios creative and anthropologie.
