Untitled: A Gathering of Black Women Artists

On November 30, for our Public Thinking Event, I coordinated an exhibit "Untitled: A Gathering of Black Women Artists," featuring artwork by SIUE students Kiarya Glover and Morgan Hill.

Glover grew up in the south west suburbs of Chicago, IL. Glover uses her art to cast a light on the social issues within the world. Vibrant colors stand as one of her signatures as she uses them to reel the audience in, in hopes that they discover the true underlying meaning of the image. Hill was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri. She majors in Textile and Fiber Arts and minors in Art History. Her artistic thesis revolves around creating ambiguous portraits and conceptual landscapes that juxtapose classical history with contemporary representations of black identity.
