For Immediate Release

Visiting Artist Whitfield Lovell presents a slide lecture on Tuesday, November 18 at 7 p.m. in the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo UCB 127. The New York City artist has received a number of awards, including a 2007 MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, also known as a “genius grant.”

The Art of Whitfield Lovell: Whispers from the Walls, a 128-page monograph on Lovell's work, was published in spring 2003 by Pomegranate Communications. He works primarily from old family photographs, juxtaposed with symbols and found images. His most recent work is comprised of tableaux constructed from charcoal drawings on vintage wood combined with found objects.

The Visiting Artist program, which brings nationally and internationally recognized artists to Hilo, is funded by the Hawai‘i Community Foundation with support from the UH Hilo Student Activities Council.
