Passover Peace Colors in Sculpture  (Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))

Tanya Walker, Graduate Research Scholar and Studio Artist, MSU
Readings by Pastor Melvin Jones and MFA artist Gregory Flicker

Tanya Walker's art is composed from images and colors related to the Jewish Diaspora and African Crossroads of the German East Africa Company, from 1888 to the end of World War One. Tanya enjoyed art studies and Hebrew in private school with French Sephardic Jewish teachers in Ohio. She created art forms by mixing clay, oil, stone, textiles, and wood from the former Native American and Sephardic Jewish plantation counties of Alabama owned by five generations of maternal ancestors. The interracial and Southern Jewish folklore she heard there now speak in her exhibition programs with voices, musical lyrics, and illustrations.

Co-sponsored by the African American and African Studies, African Studies Center, and the Department of Art, Art History, and Design.
