An associate professor of drawing at Herron School of Art at IUPUI in Indianapolis will speak about her artwork, her background and more during a Columbus program.
The event featuring Anila Quayyum Agha will be held at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Columbus Area Visitors Center, 506 Fifth St.
Organized by the Columbus Area Arts Council, it will begin at 6 p.m. with a meet-the-artist reception and light refreshments. A question-and-answer session will follow Agha’s presentation.
Born in Lahore, Pakistan, Agha has a master’s degree in fiber arts from the University of North Texas. She has taught for 10 years at Herron. Some of her work is installed at the local Cummins LiveWell Center in Columbus.
Through her artwork, Agha explores global politics, cultural multiplicity, mass media, and social and gender roles. In 2014, Agha’s installation “Intersections” won the two top prizes at the prestigious ArtPrize event in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
