Artist Talk: Stephen Powers
Sponsored by the Visual Art Department
Brooklyn-based artist Stephen Powers creates iconic graphic artworks that embrace sincerity and the power of poetry. Stemming from a hybrid of street art and old school sign painting, Powers reminds us of the importance of human connection, the inevitability of time, and the way we craft and recraft our own personal narratives.
Stephen’s celebrated mural project, A Love Letter for You, composed of a series of 50 rooftop murals, collectively express love from one to another, and from local residents to their neighborhood of West Philadelphia. In Powers’ own words, Love Letter is “a letter for one, with meaning for all” and speaks to all residents who have loved and for those who long for a way to express that love to the world around them.
Stephen Powers will be in-residence in the Visual Art Department from Monday Feb. 24 – Friday Feb. 28. He will work with students in Visual Art to create an original artwork in printmaking.
