About the event
The workshop will be led by Dr. Monique Y. Wells, founder and CEO of the Wells International Foundation, a U.S. nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower individuals, especially women and persons of African descent, to realize their highest potential through arts, literacy, study abroad, and other educational and cultural programs.
Dr. Wells will lead an exploration of the artist Beauford Delaney, a consummate artist and a warm-hearted man. Delaney was a great teacher and a great listener. Psychologically troubled, yet a profound inspiration to many. As his career evolved, Delaney painted to tame his inner demons and harnessed them to produce his art. His life and work are the perfect example of Chaos and Order that this festival seeks to explore.
