Visiting Artists Lecture Series: Lavar Munroe

April 2, 2019 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Born in Nassau, Bahamas, in 1982, Lavar Munroe is an interdisciplinary artist whose work encompasses painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation art, creating hybrid forms that straddle the line between sculpture and painting. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2007 and his Master of Fine Arts in Visual Art from Washington University in 2013. Munroe lives and works between Washington, DC, and Nassau, Bahamas.

Each year Pratt Fine Arts invites contemporary artists to campus for a public lecture and to conduct studio visits with fine arts graduate students. This Visiting Artists Lecture Series (VALS) is coordinated by graduate student leaders. The aim is to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety of fields at various stages in their career.

Pratt Institute’s Department of Fine Arts 2018/2019 Visiting Artists Lecture Series was made possible in part by a generous grant from The Robert Lehman Foundation.
