STEPHANIE DINKINS, Associate Professor, M.F.A. Maryland Institute College of Art; Digital Arts Minor Co-Program Director
Associate Professor Stephanie Dinkins is a transdisciplinary artist whose work explores race and social equity through a syncretic lens. Her art making and teaching practices are informed by an artistic lineage that extends from her grandmother, and other resourceful people who transform scraps of almost anything into useful items of unusual beauty, and the equally fluid adaptability of digital imagery. Her work is exhibited internationally. It has been featured in exhibitions at a wide variety of art venues and institutions including Institute of Contemporary Art Dunaujvaros, Hungary, Herning Kunst Museum, Denmark, Spellman College Museum of Fine Art, Spedition Bremen, Germany, Glyndor Gallery, Wave Hill, Bronx, NY , Studio Museum Harlem, New York and the corner of Malcolm X Blvd and Putnam St, Brooklyn, NY. She earned her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She is an alumna of the Independent Studies Program of the Whitney Museum of American Art and Artist in the Marketplace Program of the Bronx Museum of Art.
