On November 2, 2023 at 6pm, the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (AMFA) will be holding a discussion between artists Wangechi Mutu and Firelei Báez A'04:

"Undivided: Wangechi Mutu + Firelei Báez
November 2, 6:00 p.m.
Free admission, registration required

Wangechi Mutu and Firelei Báez, two internally recognized artists, will sit down for a once-in-a-lifetime conversation as they delve deep into unexplored territories within their artistic practices. AMFA’s Undivided series redefines the traditional conventions of an Artist Talk by pairing contemporary artists together to interview each other, creating nothing less than an unforgettable dialogue. Mutu and Baez are both world-builders, creating hybrid art forms that balance relevant topics with fictional universes and fantastical landscapes."

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
