Seen with Dindga McCannon


In-person eventPenn Museum


Join us for a special conversation with visual artist Dindga McCannon and Seen’s editor-in-chief, Dessane Lopez Cassell. A prolific, Philadelphia-based fiber artist, McCannon is also a writer, illustrator, painter, wearable-art-maker, costume designer, muralist, print-maker, and mother. This conversation will extend Zoé Samudzi’s recent profile of McCannon in Seen (issue 004). The two will discuss McCannon’s highly expressive approach to texture, surface, and color; her lifetime of making art about everyday Black people and cultural practices; how both Harlem and Philadelphia have shaped her work; her desires for the next chapter of her career; and how she taps into daily practices and rituals of creativity.
