La Plata Artist Inspired by the Life of Paul Laurence Dunbar

Kari Nupson, a senior studio art student at Cedarville University, whose military family currently lives in La Plata, Maryland, was selected as a 2019-2020 Yeck Fellow for the intensive Dayton Art Institute's Yeck College Artist Fellowship. The online exhibition, which includes the work Nupson did during the fellowship, is now available online.

The oil paintings she created during the fellowship are based on the works of Dayton poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, who was born in 1872 and is known for breaking racial and social boundaries with his poetry.
