Mother Molds, 2019
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.
Thank you to Laurie Granieri for this article about my work in Rutgers Today!
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.
The opening reception for our first-year MFA show is Friday, November 17th, 6-9pm at the Mason Gross Galleries! So honored to be a part of this incredibly inspiring group of artists. The show will be up until December 9th. Hope you can join us!
