    Norwich University School of Architecture + Art presents artist Phyllis Kornfeld

    16:00
    2019/02/15

    Norwich University School of Architecture + Art Lecture Series welcomes artist Phyllis Kornfeld, who will present her artwork as well as her work entitled “Cell Block Visions: Prison Art in America” on Friday, Feb. 15, at 4 p.m. in Mack Hall Auditorium.

    This event is free and open to the public.

    Kornfeld discovered her talent for art at a young age and was continuously encouraged to pursue art by friends and family. She attended the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and focused on Art Education. Kornfeld taught art in a variety of settings, ranging from grade school to junior college, and teaching community art classes.

    It wasn’t until 1983 that Kornfeld found her true calling after applying to teach art to prisoners. She was hired to teach at three Oklahoma state penitentiaries, and quickly recognized the talent these prisoners harbored. They used unconventional ways to create and imagine and did so with limited supplies and art education. To encourage this raw form of art they produced, Kornfeld would teach in unconventional ways. She found that teaching ideas such as composition and color theory would stand in the way of the artistic expression inmates could produce naturally and with great creative force.

    Inspired after teaching in prisons for 14 years, Kornfeld published “Cell Block Visions: Prison Art in America” in 1997. From her unique experiences, she discusses the origin of prison art, her encounters with the inmates and the impact that art has had in their lives.
