Homecoming Speaker Mary Mattingly in the News
October 08, 2012
Homecoming Speaker Mary Mattingly ‘02 is in the news for her SmartPower fellowship in the Philippines, doing workshops at Green Papaya Art Projects this month focusing, on “designing mobile public spaces that can be assembled and disassembled with ease, utilizing location-appropriate materials and tools. In disassembled form, individual units might be carried and even worn; when a group of individuals meet up with these units, they may join them together to make a community structure, assembling spaces that not only protect but also collect water, store food and produce power.”
Mattingly delivers the Homecoming Address at PNCA on October 19 as part of the annual Alumni Reunion.
Mattingly is an American visual artist living and working in New York. She was born in Rockville, Connecticut, in 1978. She studied at Parsons School of Design in New York, and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. She is the recipient of a Yale University School of Art fellowship.
