Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz: Conrad Nelson Visiting Artist Fellow Lecture

Tuesday, October 24, 2023
Doors: 6:30pm | Performance: 7pm

This visiting artist fellowship is endowed by Millersville alumna Conrad Nelson and Luceille B. Hagarman.

Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz is an interdisciplinary visual artist whose work pulls from 17th and 18th-century European portraiture, comic books, sketch comedy, folkloric dance, and installation to address race, bias, trauma, and healing. For over 20 years she has been committed to creating art that dissects cultural and social constructs designed to isolate, “herd” and manage Otherness, Latinindad, and Blackness. Her work has been exhibited in numerous venues such as The Momentary, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Museum of Arts and Design. She earned her MFA from Rutgers University Mason Gross School of Art and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She currently serves as a board member for the College Art Association where she’s committed to addressing invisible workloads on faculty of color.
