Getting SLU students involved with the AKALA project

Tanda Dhlakama, SLU ’11, will be conducting research this month to compile an artist’s biography page for Professor Udechukwu that will be included here on the AKALA Web site.  As a fine arts major, Tanda was a student in Obiora’s Art and Politics in Nigeria course, where she became familiar with some of the artists in our digital image collection project and their work.  Two years ago, Tanda wrote several text panels for artwork on display at SLU’s Owen D. Young Library.  Originally from Zimbabwe, Tanda spent last fall studying art in Florence, Italy.  She also does gallery installations and museum standard matting and framing.
