Hear from Walentas Fellow Alicia Grullón during our upcoming Conversations@Moore lecture!
Launched in 2018, the prestigious Jane and David Walentas Endowed Fellowship underscores Moore's ongoing commitment to social engagement by offering opportunities to thoughtful artists who bring their vision for the future of cultural production to the Moore community and the larger artistic community of Philadelphia. The fellowship, launched in 2018, was endowed by Jane Zimmerman Walentas, who graduated from Moore in 1966, and her husband, David.
The 2020–2022 Walentas Fellow is Alicia Grullón, a native and resident of New York City and a multidisciplinary artist who uses video, photography, social sculpture and performance to bring attention to issues like immigration, climate change, and racial and economic disparities. She will use the fellowship to contribute to the creative and intellectual life of Philadelphia, and to Moore’s artistic and academic community. Grullón's appointment was announced in July 2020.
This event is part of our ongoing Conversations@Moore public program series, organized by Moore College of Art & Design Graduate Studies programs in Socially Engaged Art. Visit the Moore College of Art & Design website for more information on Moore’s Graduate Studies Socially Engaged Art Programs.
