Danforth Discussion: Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller
Join the Danforth for a fascinating discussion about the creative process and artistic innovation of Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller. Fuller (1877–1968), was born in Philadelphia, trained in Paris, and lived and worked in Framingham for the majority of her life. She is known for her groundbreaking depictions of the African and African-American experience. The Danforth Art Museum is the proud caretaker of a special collection of Fuller’s sculptures and ephemera.
Rachel Passannante, Danforth Art Museum Collections Manager, and Leigh Faramarzpour, Danforth Art School Instructor, will jointly present this online conversation/class, focusing on Fuller’s role as an artist–how she worked, her artistic process, and the intensity of the obstacles she faced as an African-American woman raising a family while working as a professional artist. This is an online, interactive class with no art making. $15 registration fee. https://danforth.framingham.edu/learn-create/adults-spring/
