Chris Wade Robinson

A graduate of Syracuse University and the London School of Fine Art, he was honored in 1995 by then-First Lady Hillary Clinton with the GSA Federal Design Award for Arts Education for his key role in organizing the “Awareness Through Art Mural Project,” which celebrated the discovery of the colonial-era African burial ground in lower Manhattan.  Robinson’s typically large canvases employ archetypal images to portray, in his words, “a people who rose above classification as sub-human to give the world bold examples of true humanity in the face of inhumanity, conquering hatred with love, laughter, logic and the gifts of the soul.”
