Critical Race Studies Artist-in-Residence program enters its fifth year

MSU’s College of Arts and Letters’ Critical Race Studies Artist-in-Residence program is bringing two dynamic artists to campus for the 2021-2022 academic year to enrich the life of the greater Lansing community by cultivating diversity and facilitating practices of inclusion through art and design. 

This year’s Critical Race Studies Artists-in-Residence are Dan Paz, visual artist, and Elka Stevens, textile and mixed media artist.

“We are delighted to be able to host Dan and Elka this year, returning the residency to its ‘in-person’ format,” said Karin Zitzewitz, associate professor in the Department of Art, Art History and Design and coordinator of the Critical Race Studies Residency. “Although they work in different art and design disciplines, they share a sense of the fundamental role of the aesthetic in everyday experiences of race and identity. I am certain that their effect on our community will be galvanizing, helping us to think more carefully and deliberately about some of the most important issues of our time.”
