Richard is a landscape painter, illustrator, and arts educator; daughter Ina is a Purchase alumnae who is now a production designer for film and television; and son Scott is a graphic designer and brand builder who attended Purchase College.

Listen as Richard reminisces about his career; his experiences as a founding member of Spiral, an African American artists’ collective established in 1960s New York as a way for artists to discuss their experiences in the Civil Rights movement; and his current work which he refers to as mindscapes. Hear his children reflect on growing up surrounded by art and artists and how these experiences not only shaped their thinking about art but also influenced their professional careers … and their collaboration on numerous projects.

Moderated by Neuberger Museum of Art, Curator of Education, Youth & Adult Programs Diana Puglisi.

This program is part of the Daniel P. Paduano and Janet W. Prindle Lecture Series.
