Moore Student Honored As A "Woman of Substance and Style"

On February 19, 2014, Moore student Kelicia Pitts was honored as a “woman of substance and style” by Joan Shepp at her Philadelphia store on Chestnut Street.

Pitts, a junior Curatorial Studies major at Moore, has dedicated her life to art and helping artists. In 2006, she conceptualized “The Kandy Project,” a collaboration of 21 different photographers and one muse (Pitts), which turned into a 12 month traveling exhibition. In 2008, this led her to start her own company, “The Kelicia Pitts Creative Group.”

Pitts decided at age 33 to go back to school in order to learn more about art and to earn a degree in Curatorial Studies with a dual minor in Business and Digital Arts at Moore.

Due to graduate in 2015, Pitts continues to stay busy modeling. Her latest project is a continuation of “The Kandy Project” by artist Henry Bermudez. In this collaboration, she is the primary model/subject in eight-foot wall-size paper assemblages combined with wall-size photographs.

Currently, Pitt’s image is being formed by sculptor Christopher Smith, after which it will be bronzed and mounted at the Woodmere Museum in Chestnut Hill.
