Central College's Mills Gallery to Feature Delano Dunn an Allison B. Allen Visiting Artist
Central College will welcome the works of Delano Dunn to the Mills Gallery in the Lubbers Center for the Visual Arts. His exhibit is titled "Delano Dunn: Dreams and Other Fables." The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
A virtual presentation with Dunn will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18.
Dunn was selected as the art program's Allison B. Allen Visiting Artist. The Allison B. Allen Visiting Artist series emphasizes expanding the diversity of artistic experiences and cultural outlooks for Central art students and the campus community. Designated artists and their exhibited works are funded entirely by the Allison B. Allen Visiting Artist Fund. Dunn will return during the Spring semester for a weeklong residency.
Through painting, mixed media and collage, Dunn explores questions of racial identity and perception within various contexts, ranging from the personal to the political, and drawing from his experience growing up in South Central Los Angeles. His works employ archival images pulled from such sources as vintage Creole cookbooks, comic books, 1860s issues of Harper's Bazaar housed in the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and photojournalism of the Civil Rights era, among others.
Dunn received his BFA in illustration from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and his MFA in fine arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He lives in Chicago, Illinois, with his wife and two children.
