Artist Talk: Francine Affortit, artist and arts organizer
Guest of the Fine Art Department
November 10, 10:00 a.m.
Francine Kay Affourtit (1975) is a Philadelphia based artist, educator and arts organizer. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA from Tyler School of Art as a Temple University Fellow.
Francine’s studio work concentrates on re-thinking the applications of printmaking to create sculptural installations and unique constructions from woodcuts. Francine’s activities outside the studio are fueled by a desire to build relationships with artists, communities and the public as a means of collaborative creation and transformative discourse. http://www.francinekaffourtit.com/
Throughout the year, the academic departments at PCA&D invite many nationally known artists to add to the curricular content for the students. Many of these are open to the public. The community is invited to join the College to hear about the work, practice and career of these exemplary artists.
These talks are held in PCA&D’s Atrium. There is no cost to attend these lectures.
