Sonya Clark is an international artist, Professor of Art and the History of Art at Amherst College, F&M's Department of Art & Art History Conrad Nelson Speaker, and the college's Richard C. von Hess Foundation Collaborative Residency in Art History recipient. Clark’s (American, b. 1967) mixed media works use everyday objects to address tangled histories, cultural heritage, and identity. The Phillips Museum of Art is delighted to present Sonya Clark’s new site-specific installation "Sonya Clark: Finding Freedom" which highlights Lancaster as a location along the Underground Railroad and the use of the night sky, specifically the Big Dipper constellation, to orient those seeking freedom. Free and open to all.
