Meet our Artist Faculty!
Please tell us of an artist, curator, activist, or project that has influenced you or inspired you?
Assata Shakur. Incredible activist. Her autobiography was an awakening for me in high school!
Please tell us about a place in your neighborhood that is personally meaningful to you, and why?
The creek: its peaceful and is an oasis from the busy street and park. I have fond childhood memories of walking through the creek.
What is your favorite book, film or song about NYC?
hmmmm… I can’t remember the name of it, but there was this coming of age story about a girl growing up in the Bronx and her overcoming her stage fright and performing her music.
