Lopez Colon is chair of the Department of History and Fine Arts at the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico. He describes his work as attempting to create a visual dialogue between modernist painting aesthetics and the iconographic construction of colonialism in Puerto Rico.
His residency was rescheduled from late October, when it was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy and the closing of the UD campus.
The project a collaboration among the departments of Art, Music and Theatre is designed to bring distinguished visiting artists to campus to initiate new work, advance work-in-progress and share existing work through performances, exhibits, lectures and work with students.
