“In Conversation with Mario Moore” at ACP

“IN CONVERSATION”: The Arts Council of Princeton will present artist Mario Moore, center, in the virtual program “In Conversation with Mario Moore and James Steward” on Tuesday, July 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The free program is part of the ACP’s apART together initiative.

The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) takes pride in its diverse community of artists, authors, and creatives of all disciplines. “In Conversation” is a curated series of discussions designed to celebrate and connect those who make art and those who love art. Breaking down the barriers between artist and art-appreciator, “In Conversation” delves into inspiration, studio practice, and artistic aspirations.

The ACP presents “In Conversation with Mario Moore and James Steward” on Tuesday, July 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Moore (b. 1987) is a Detroit native currently residing in New York City. He received a BFA in Illustration from the College for Creative Studies (2009) and an MFA in Painting from the Yale School of Art (2013). He has participated as an artist-in-residence at Knox College, Fountainhead residency, and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. 

Moore’s work has afforded him many opportunities – from multiple exhibitions and featured articles including the New York Times. His work is included in several public and private collections which include the Detroit Institute of Art and the Studio Museum in Harlem. Some of his solo show exhibits have been seen at the David Klein Gallery and The Urban Institute of Contemporary Art. His work is also included in Fired Up! Ready to Go! Finding Beauty, Demanding Equity: An African American Life in Art (2017) and The Studio Museum in Harlem’s catalog, Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art (2014). He has recently been awarded a Princeton Hodder Fellowship for 2018-2019. 

This talk is held in collaboration with the Princeton University Art Museum. Moore will be in conversation with James Steward, museum director, with introductions by Timothy M. Andrews, major supporter of the Arts Council of Princeton. Register at artscouncilofprinceton.org. Registration is free.

This program is a part of the Arts Council of Princeton’s apART together initiative, created to provide virtual programming in order to stay creative and connected during this time while we are all physically distancing.
