Robyn Phillips-Pendleton, professor of visual communications in the Department of Art and Design, has co-curated Imprinted: Illustrating Race at the Norman Rockwell Museum with Stephanie Haboush Plunkett, the museum's deputy director/chief curator. The two are joined by a national advisory panel of scholars, curators and artists with expertise related to the subject of the exhibition.
Featuring over 100 artworks and artifacts created from the late 18th century to present day, the exhibition examines the impact published images have on Americans' perceptions of race and culture. The exhibition also explores depicted racial stereotypes that influence these perceptions. Imprinted: Illustrating Race will run from June 11 through October 30, 2022.
“I am thrilled to be working with Norman Rockwell Museum and a part of this groundbreaking illustration exhibition that highlights the perception and advancement of race through artwork. This exhibition promotes new ideas through imagery that celebrates, normalizes, and facilitates inter-cultural tolerance," said Phillips-Pendleton.
In addition to being an educator, Phillips-Pendleton is an active illustrator, visual storyteller and designer. She has exhibited her work in national and international exhibitions. Phillips-Pendleton served on the Norman Rockwell Museum National Advisory Board for Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms, an exhibition that traveled globally. She was also a juror for the exhibition's contemporary component. Her illustrations have appeared on/in album covers, magazines, and books, among others. She is also an artist for the United States Air Force Artist Program and a member of the Board of Directors of New York's Society of Illustrators. Her research concentrates on the history of illustration and the impact of published images on perceptions of race. A Companion to Illustration (edited by Alan Male, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2019) features her essay “Race, Perception, and Responsibility in Illustration." Homework for Breakfast is her most recent illustrated picture book.
