McDaniel College’s Department of Art and Art History will present a guest artist lecture by Jennifer White-Johnson on Monday, November 15 at 6:00 p.m.  The lecture will take place in Peterson Hall, Room 100 on the McDaniel College campus.

An assistant professor at Bowie State University, Jennifer White-Johnson is an Afro-Latina, disabled designer, educator, and activist, whose visual work explores the intersection of content and caregiving with an emphasis on redesigning ableist visual culture.  Of her work, she says, “There is heart and soul in the journey that breaks through the stigma of highlighting autistic joy in Black & Brown Lives. “

She runs a studio practice called JT Photo & Design, and her clients include educational institutions, independent artists, and community organizations like the Creative Alliance at The Patterson in Baltimore.  Her photography and design work has been featured in numerous print and online publications, and creative collaborative projects, including the Washington Post, DC Metro Theater Arts and in two Grammy nominated visual designs.  She was also a nominee for Baltimore Photographer of the Year by RAWartists, an international indie arts organization.

The lecture, which is sponsored by Ars Nova, the College’s art club, is free and open to the public.  McDaniel College follows current CDC protocols and recommendations related to COVID-19 and we ask that visitors adhere to all policies and regulations in accordance with the latest guidelines. We appreciate your cooperation.  For more information on the artist, visit jenwhitejohnson.com.
