Steve Prince to host brown bag lunch demonstration of his artwork

Steve Prince, the Muscarelle Museum of Art’s new director of engagement and distinguished artist in residence, will host a brown bag lunch at the museum Friday.

Prince will give a sneak peek and demonstration as he creates his series entitled "Cycles".

During the demonstration, an open discussion with the artist will reveal his thought processes and methods in creating large-scale works with subject matter that deals with the cycle of life — pregnancy, maturation, rites of passage — as well as societal struggles including prejudice, indifference and racism.

Prince is a native of New Orleans. He received his BFA from Xavier University of Louisiana and his Masters in Fine Arts in Printmaking and Sculpture from Michigan State University.

Many of his hands-on workshops and community-based projects have culminated in the creation of permanent communal based artworks. Among his public works includes the mixed media piece entitled Lemonade: A Picture of America created in 2017 to commemorate the first three African American students in residence at William and Mary.

Want to attend?

The event will be from noon-2 p.m. on Dec. 7, at the Muscarelle Museum of Art on the first floor at 603 Jamestown Road. While the event is free guests must bring their own lunch.
