Bukola Koiki Shortlisted for Emerging Voices Award
March 28, 2019
Congratulations to Bukola Koiki, alumna of the MFA in Applied Craft and Design program ('15), who was recently shortlisted by the American Craft Council for the 2019 Emerging Voices Award. The Emerging Voices Award celebrates new makers and thinkers significantly shaping directions and dialogues in contemporary craft.
Bukola Koiki is a Nigerian-American interdisciplinary artist whose work strives to collapse the single story of the immigrant experience by exploring the challenging liminal space they inhabit. Her multidimensional fiber works reflect her material and technical curiosity, featuring prints rendered with embroidered collagraph plates, giant paper beads employing Nigerian hair-threading techniques, and more. She has exhibited nationally and has also been featured in Surface Design magazine and online on Art21 Magazine.
Koiki is currently an AICAD teaching fellow at Maine College of Art.
ACR has ranked the top animation, design, and gaming programs across the country through annual lists for each state since 2011.
PNCA alums Demian DinéYazhi' ’13 and Lehuauakea ’18 discuss their influences and practices.
Pacific Northwest College of Art extends a huge congratulations to MFA in Visual Studies alumna Elizabeth Malaska, who was recently named one of the 2021 Guggenheim Fellows in Fine Arts.
It is with deep admiration and respect that Pacific Northwest College of Art remembers Dorothy Lemelson who passed away on March 10, 2021.
The museum obtained the painting through a generous gift on behalf of PNCA Board Chair Scott. D. Musch.
