The Landmark College Academic Speaker Series presents visual artist Destiny Palmer on Tuesday, September 27 at 5 p.m. in in the Brooks M. O’Brien Auditorium, located in the Lewis Academic Building.
The Boston-based artist will discuss her public art and studio-based practice that function as places to create dialogue and make space for investigation. Palmer will also share how her practice has ebbed and flowed to what it has become now, centered around color, abstraction and history.
Palmer received her Master of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art at Temple University and Bachelor’s in Fine Art at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She has exhibited at Antenna Gallery, The Colored Girls Museum, Automat Collective, Ely Center for the Arts, Vandermoot Gallery, among other places. Palmer is also the co-founder of Traditions Remixed, an artist collective whose goal is to create a supportive community for young artists, especially artists of color, and has served on Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s Arts and Culture Team. She is currently a faculty member at Thayer Academy.
