Works by artist Jade Hoyer, 2016-17 Ann Plato Scholar
Opening reception, Thursday, October 13, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Jade Hoyer is the Ann Plato Fellow at Trinity College for 2016-17.  During this year she will join the Studio Arts Program faculty, and pursue her own research.  The fellowship is named for Ann Plato, a 19th-century author and teacher of African American and Native American descent, who lived and wrote in Hartford.
