Event: Artist Lecture: Letitia Huckaby
About this Event
Multimedia artist Letitia Huckaby will discuss her prize-winning career in photography and art. Huckaby creates multimedia artwork that, in her words, is based on “faith, family and legacy” as “a time capsule for the African-American experience.”
She began her artistic career at the age of four when her parents started her in dance classes. She studied ballet, tap, jazz, and modern until the age of eighteen, and was selected to participate in the prestigious Oklahoma Arts Institute two years in a row. This exposure to a variety of other art forms led her to photography.
Huckaby holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma, a BFA from the Art Institute of Boston, Massachusetts in photography, and a Master’s degree from the University of North Texas.
Huckaby has exhibited at the Dallas Contemporary, the Galveston Arts Center, Renaissance Fine Art in Harlem, the McKenna Museum in New Orleans, and the Dallas African-American Museum. Public projects include a piece along the Trinity River in Fort Worth at the 4th Street Trailhead site and the new Ella Mae Shamblee branch library in Fort Worth.
