Artists in Action – Featuring Tanisha Pyron
Mon, October 28 @ 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
In conjunction with the traveling exhibition, Black Refractions: Highlights from The Studio in Harlem, The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is featuring Where We Stand: Black Artists in Southwest Michigan, an exhibition to celebrate local black artists. KPL has partnered with the KIA to feature one of the exhibiting artists at each KPL location.
The spotlight artist will work each day on a special piece that will be featured at the December Art Hop. Patrons will have the special opportunity to interact with an artist Monday through Friday, create art in the style of the artist, and participate in a very special program facilitated by the artist.
KPL welcomes photographer Tanisha Pyron, a graduate of Western Michigan University’s theater program, who also earned an MFA in acting at the University of Illinois. She is also an actor, dancer, singer, filmmaker, playwright, poet, and educator.
Come to the Washington Square Branch and watch Tanisha Pyron in action!
There will also be a special program featuring Tanisha Pyron on Wednesday, October 30, 5 pm at the Washington Square Branch. Registration required.
