Special AAS 349 Course Event
Professor Sonya Clark’s work draws from the legacy of crafted objects and the embodiment of skill. As an African American artist, craft is a means to honor her lineage and expand notions of both American-ness and art. Clark is a professor in the Department of Art and the History of Art at Amherst College in Western Massachusetts. She holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2015 she was awarded an honorary doctorate from her alma mater Amherst College.
