The Fall 2023 Visiting Artist Program concludes on Thursday, November 30, with a talk by Paul Anthony Smith, who will discuss his paintings and picotage on pigment prints that explore the artist's own life as well as issues of identity within the African diaspora. All are welcome to this free event.

Our Fall 2023 Visiting Artist lecture series, “Constructed Landscapes,” is coming to an end! At the very end of this month, Paul Anthony Smith will be giving a talk on his paintings and picotage prints that explore the artist’s autobiography, as well as issues of identity within the African diaspora. Smith’s practice celebrates the rich and complex histories of the post-colonial Caribbean and its people, with an emphasis on the themes of memory, home, and hybrid identities. Smith’s unique way of creating layered picotage is often patterned in the style of Caribbean breeze block fences and modernist architectural elements that function as veils, creating a perplexing effect that is meant both to obscure and protect Smith’s subjects from external gaze. 🎨

If you haven’t had a chance to sit in on one of our Visiting Artist lectures, definitely plan to join us this month to hear from Paul Anthony Smith!

When: Thursday, November 30th 12:45PM - 1:45PM (free period)

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) is a public humanities center bridging campus and community. Home to projects like The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia and the Cooper Street History project, as well as a continuing education program in historic preservation, MARCH has always thought deeply about place and how humanities scholarship can serve our region. Starting this year, we are expanding that focus to include the environmental humanities, creating programming that thinks about how we perceive our world, our relationship with our nonhuman neighbors, climate histories and how they are told, and the possibilities for environmental justice.

As part of that growth, we are looking for a program coordinator who can support and develop these programs. If you know of someone with experience in public humanities, environmental humanities, or public history please share the job posting below!
