To commemorate Occidental College’s 125th Anniversary Alumni exhibition, I was asked to created a site-specific drawing, measuring 132 x 96 inches. I selected one of Occidental’s first African American graduates, Janet Stafford, as the subject. Using one of her yearbook photos and an excerpt from Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man, the piece touches on the complexities of social change during that time. The title of the drawing, 1952, aptly reflects the year of Stafford’s graduation from the school and the year that Invisible Man was published.
