Mixed media installation artist Theda Sandiford’s heritage has afforded her the opportunity to know herself as a symphony of aesthetic values. Her German mother and Barbadian father created a life that constructed latticework of multi-hued understanding.
So when she was diagnosed with dyslexia and later MS , these ‘obstacles’ were addressed with a deliberateness that gave way to grace. To overcome the pressures of a career as a music executive, Theda’s work reflects the resilience required for a woman of color to create and traverse her own lane. With art as therapy shes taken notes for us all to use as reference. As the viewers of her work can and do attest – they are afforded the same.
Sandiford will be doing hair wrapping participatory workshops in Room 843 at the following times:
Friday, February 21st 5:00-7:00pm
Saturday, February 22nd 1:00-3:00pm
Sunday, February 23rd 1:00-3:00pm
