Artist Micro-commissions – Gallery

To support local artists and designers during COVID-19, the Askwith Kenner Global Languages and Cultures Room created the Micro-Commissions Project. We invited eight CMU students and local Pittsburgh artists to create artworks to be displayed within the room and on a new digital projection installation on the glass wall near the front of the room. Artists were inspired by our themes of language, culture, identity, and personal stories. Each artist had the freedom to choose any medium.

Please enjoy the artwork and designs from the eight wonderful artists. Click on the link below each artwork to learn about the artists’ inspirations and thoughts behind each piece,

1) “Reflections” by Langston Wells

2) “How to Tame a Wild Tongue” by Jennifer Shin

3) “The Fruits of our Culture” by Nancy Zuo

4) “Opening the Door of Opportunity” by Alyssa Song

5) “As I Search for the Word” by Daniel Noh

6) “Idioms Around The World” by Jubbies

7) “The Korean-American Dictionary” by Eileen Lee

8) “Working Together, Apart” by Sanna

We would like to thank all of the artists for creating these beautiful pieces of artwork! We look forward to displaying them in the Kenner room.
