The North Carolina Central University (NCCU) Art Museum turns the spotlight on works by Department of Art and Design faculty members in a featured exhibit running through March 12.

Visitors can view the faculty exhibit in person or as a virtual experience, with the museum open to a limited number of visitors. View the exhibit online at https://www.nccu.edu/nccu-art-museum/faculty-exhibition-2021.

Works in the exhibit include drawing, painting, graphic design, printmaking collage and sculpture. Featured artists are NCCU Art Museum director and Art and Design Department chair Brenda Faison, as well as professors Troy Brown, Myongsin Choi, Kwame Hawkins, Connie Floyd and Chad Hughes.

Faison will exhibit paintings developed from an array of digital tools that translate the physical elements of the environment onto print.

Brown will show a series of diverse African American figures presented in varying forms. The works will explore rich narratives hidden within the layers of images.

Political and social aspects of human life are addressed in the works of Choi and Hawkins.

Choi provides a collection of captivating sculptures that illustrate the unpredictability of society and the role of human suffering in the healing process. Hawkins examines key issues facing the African American community through a set of striking digital prints.

Floyd will show an African-inspired 3D collage composed of hair picks that were individually carved out of pieces of wood.

Hughes’ oil paintings provide a look into self-expression and an inventive take on painting construction.

The North Carolina Central University Art Museum is on Lawson Street across from the Farrison-Newton Communications Building. The NCCU Art Museum is on one level with no steps at the entrance. Every effort is made to make all NCCU Art Museum exhibits accessible to those with physical challenges.
