Light as Curious as Shadow: Artist Demonstration by Ava East

Ava East is a Detroit-based multidisciplinary artist and performer focusing on illustration, fine arts, and performance. Immersed in both visual and musical pursuits, she connects both, focusing on themes of identity, femininity, and recital. She is most intrigued in the nature of light and shadow play with the “yet-to-be-revealed.” She received her BFA at Wayne State University in 2019. 

Utilizing illustrative methods and tools, she will give visitors a personal look into her craft with an interactive experience for everyone.

This program is in conjunction with the DIA’s special exhibition From Camelot to Kent State: Pop Art, 1960-1975 on view through August 25, 2019 in the Schwartz Galleries of Prints and Drawings, 1st Level.
