Roberto Jamora is a Filipino-American Richmond-based artist and educator. He holds an MFA from Purchase College, State University of New York, and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. The Asian Centennial committee chose Jamora to be the inaugural Asian Centennial Distinguished Fine Arts Fellow at William & Mary. During this talk, Jamora will present his vision for artistically expressing the Asian Pacific Middle Eastern experience and history at William & Mary. His recent work includes The Sound of Fate Knocking at the Door 2, which the Muscarelle Museum of Art acquired in honor of the Asian Centennial. The painting is part of a series called An Inventory of Traces. Jamora says that the purpose of the series is to “commit important events in my life to memory via painting. I mine color from memory, photos, interviews, and artifacts from my family.”

This Muscarelle Explorations: The Voice of the Artist lecture is co-sponsored by the Asian Centennial Committee and the Muscarelle Museum of Art.

This series is made possible by our partner, The Williamsburg Landing.

Diego Romero is a Cochiti Pueblo potter and printmaker based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Romero’s artistic mission is to transcend his Native American heritage by combining traditional materials, techniques, and forms of ancient Mimbres, Anasazi, and Greek pottery with comic book inspired imagery, to talk about contemporary issues. His lively and thought-provoking work has reached across the United States and Europe and resides in collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Muscarelle plans to acquire a work by Romero to commemorate his visit.
