Arthur P. Williams Lecture: Andrea Dezsö

Gershman Hall Chapel

The MFA Book Arts/Printmaking program presents the annual Arthur P. Williams Lecture featuring visual artist Andrea Dezsö.

Dezsö works in a range of media including drawing, painting, artist's books, cut paper, embroidery, animation, sculpture, site-specific installation and permanent public art. She exhibits in museums and galleries around the world and her work has been widely collected and installed in many locations, including two New York City subway stations and the United States Embassy in Bucharest, Romania. She is also an award-winning illustrator.

Dezsö studied at the Hungarian University of Design in Budapest, receiving her BFA in 1994 and her MFA in 1996. Among her many awards are Best American Public Art for one of her mosaics in the New York subway, and most recently, all in the past year, the Publisher’s Weekly Best Book of the Year, a Marion and Jasper Whiting Fellowship, and a Mellon Foundation grant. She is currently an assistant professor of Art at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass.

The annual Arthur P. Williams Lecture is made possible by a generous contribution from alumnus Carl L. Steele CERT '51 (Interior Design).
