The College hosted two lectures by renowned artist Walton Ford on Tuesday, Feb. 21. Students and faculty attended the first, and the general public was invited to the second. Both lectures were very well received.
Ford, who is known for painting in watercolors in the naturalist illustration style of Audubon, has an international following and is the recipient of many prestigious awards. Each of his paintings is filled with symbols, jokes and clues, and he draws meticulously from flora and fauna studies. His acclaimed paintings are frequently complex narratives critiquing the history of colonialism, industrialism, politics, science and environment. Ford is currently represented by the Paul Kasmin Gallery in Manhattan
