Event Navigation

Renée Stout’s work in painting, drawing, mixed media sculpture, photography, and installation blends spiritual roots in the African Diaspora with elements of contemporary life to create works that encourage self-examination, self-empowerment, and self-healing. Her works are included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Fine Art, among many others. Stout is the recipient of the 2018 Women’s Caucus for Art Lifetime Achievement Award. She received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 1980.

This lecture inaugurates the annual Distinguished School of Art Alumni Lecture. All lectures are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the East Campus Garage after 5:00pm or on Frew, Margaret Morrison, and Tech Streets after 6:00pm.
