“Being able to make art that I felt a connection to made me feel like I was really contributing to our culture and values as Black individuals."

For her senior studio seminar art project, Obiamaka Igwenagu ’23 chose to focus on Black individuals and African American culture.

Inspired by fabrics and jewelry that her parents brought from Nigeria, Igwenagu, a studio art and health studies double major, creates pieces that highlight her cultural background and acknowledges those who have shaped and supported her.
