Visiting Artists Program: Njideka Akunyili Crosby

Friday, November 9

Art Parkway District

Njideka Akunyili Crosby is a 2017 MacArthur Fellow. She is a figurative painter whose large-scale works express the hybridity characteristic of transnational experience through choices of subject matter, materials, and techniques. Njideka Akunyili Crosby received a B.A. (2004) from Swarthmore College, a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (2006) from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and an M.F.A. (2011) from Yale University.

The Visiting Artists Program brings an outstanding roster of local, national and international artists to PAFA each semester for lectures, critiques, and workshops. The program exposes students and the public to a range of artistic approaches, and fosters discussion about contemporary art and ideas.

All lectures are free and take place in the Hamilton Auditorium of PAFA's Historic Landmark Building, 11:45 a.m. -1 p.m.
