Mixed-media fiber artist Kathleen Granados, Fine Arts ’09, will be FIT’s second artist-in-residence February 12 to 14, in the Art and Design Second Floor Studio in the Pomerantz Center. Her work has been featured at NoMAA, the African American Museum in Philadelphia, the Dyckman Farmhouse, and the Morris-Jumel Mansion. She also has work in the permanent collection of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York.
AIR@FIT, the college’s artist-in-residence program organized by Associate Dean for the School of Art and Design Melanie Reim, brings noted artists to FIT for three days at a time to create work and teach students. (Couturier John Anthony ’57 was artist-in-residence in October.) Sue Willis, adjunct associate professor of Fine Arts, invited Granados back to the campus for this special event.
The program is supported by the Student/Faculty Corporation and the School of Art and Design. It is open to students by invitation only.
