Alumni event | A conversation with Nell Painter

Go back to art school this fall with RISD Reads and alumna Nell Painter MFA 11 PT, author of such books as The History of White People and Old in Art School. When Painter decided to become An Artist in her 60s after a long and distinguished career in academia, she earned her MFA in Painting at RISD, raising questions about what it means to be an artist within a pedagogy that undervalues her race, gender and age.

Painter will discuss her book and life with RISD Reads host and chair Amy Cohen 76 TX. All are welcome to attend. Do you have a question for the author? You may submit questions here
