Marcus Akinlana recently completed a mural for The Art Garage in Philadelphia. Sunday he speaks at Meadows Museum of Art at Centenary College, says Leia Lewis. His work is in Meadows as part of the exhibition "Focus Gallery: Louisiana Artists at the Crossroads."
Akinlana is a New Orleans-based painter, muralist, and public artist.
He began painting murals as a youth in Washington, D.C. He graduated in 1988 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a B.F.A.
Art in America magazine selected a mural by Akinlana as the Best Public Art of 1995, and included his "Mile High and Rising" project in "Public Art Review 2000."
