When it comes to race, art, and gender, Spelman College President Mary Schmidt Campbell, PhD is an authority. Campbell was integral in expanding the Studio Museum in Harlem, transforming it into the country’s first accredited black fine arts museum. She later served as dean of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she incubated new visions in arts and technology. An accomplished art historian, she has also published widely on topics relating to representation, race, society, and ethics. She visits Scripps to discuss her passion for the arts, education, and her most recent book, An American Odyssey: The Life and Work of Romare Bearden.
