The University of West Florida College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities announces its next installment of the 2017-18 Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series will be held March 8 at the Pensacola Museum of Art, 407 South Jefferson Street. Artist Katrina Andry will present “Katrina Andry: Art as Activism.” A reception will take place at 5:30 p.m., with the lecture at 6 p.m. The lecture is held in conjunction with the exhibition “Katrina Andry: Depose and Dispose (of),” on view now through March 12.
Andry’s work explores the negative effects stereotypes have on people of color in America. Through her work, Andry considers the historical aspect of stereotypes perpetuated against people of color and discusses how these stereotypes originated, what they are based on and in what ways they are harmful.
A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Andry received a master’s degree in printmaking from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 2010. In 2012, Andry was listed in an issue of Art in Print as one of the top 50 printmakers. She has also been awarded residencies from the Joan Mitchell Center of New Orleans, Anchor Graphics in Chicago, and Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California.
This installment of the Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series is sponsored, in part, by the UWF Office of Equity & Diversity as part of the John C. Pace Symposium Series.
