Artist and educator Steve Prince, an artist-in-residence at Segura Art Studio at the University of Notre Dame, will deliver an artist talk at 6 p.m. Thursday (March 2) in the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, 1045 W. Washington St., South Bend. The talk is free and open to the public. Prince is a native of New Orleans, and the rhythms of the city’s art, music and religion pulsate through his work. His favorite medium is linoleum cut printmaking.
Prince has taught at middle school and college, and is currently teaching at Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania. He has shown his art internationally in various solo, group and juried exhibitions; at the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia; the National Gallery of the Bahamas; the Museum of Cultural Arts Center in Santa Catarina, Brazil; the Grand Rapids Museum of Art; Hampton University Museum; the Museum of African American Culture in New Orleans; Xavier University of Louisiana Gallery; and the Peninsula Fine Arts Center, to name a few.
Prince has created a number of public artworks, including a life-size bronze bust of 1967 Medal of Honor recipient Ruppert Leon Sargent in Hampton, Virginia; a 12-by-40-foot mixed media installation titled “Fabric of Life” in Newport News, Virginia; and a 15-foot stainless-steel kinetic sculpture titled “Song for John” in the Coliseum Central district in Hampton, Virginia.
