On Friday, May 7, 2020, from 3pm-4:30pm EDT, Professor Curlee R. Holton, Director of the David C. Driskell Center, will deliver the Distinguished Scholar Lecture for the Association of Print Scholars. The lecture, entitled “Being an Artist, Printmaker, and Creative Collaborator” will be delivered on Zoom. A Q&A session will follow.

Professor Curlee R. Holton will discuss his personal and professional journey to becoming an artist and the creative possibilities that he discovered through printmaking. Reflecting on his own experiences and relationships with Robert Blackburn, Elizabeth Catlett, and David C. Driskell, among others, Prof. Holton will trace how his passion for collaboration – so deeply inherent in the printed medium – grew out of a desire to build a community with a shared belief in the transformative power of art, and how that passion has been, and can be, a source for self-liberation and social engagement.
