Baltimore-based artist Jerrell Gibbs presents a guest artist lecture. Gibbs was chosen by the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) selection committee to paint the official portrait of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, which is now permanently on display in the U.S. Capitol complex. He retraces family memories, examining the origins of his own life, by representing intimate and instantly joyous moments. His figurative portraits are adapted from small Polaroids into life-sized paintings. Gibbs, who graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), has work in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles Museum of Art, CC Foundation, X Museum, and BMA.
