The annual Nonword & Upward student juried show is quickly approaching! Each year, the art department encourages all full-time Wheaton undergraduate students to enter work that they have made during the time that they have been enrolled at Wheaton.
We are excited to have Nnenna Okore as our juror for the show this year. Nnenna is an Associate Professor of Art at North Park University, Chicago, where she teaches Sculpture. She earned her B.A degree in Painting from the University of Nigeria (First Class Honors) in 1999, and an M.A and M.F.A. in Sculpture from the University of Iowa in 2004 and 2005. She has received several national and international awards and been shown in numerous prestigious galleries and museums within and outside the United States. She was a 2012/13 recipient of the prestigious Fulbright Scholar Award, which resulted in a year spent in Nigeria teaching at the University of Lagos and producing new works.
