The Power of Expression
One of the unique features of our Princeton campus is that we feature artwork by local artists on our walls in six-month rotations. One artist currently featured on our walls is Lorenzo DiAndrea, a SAORI weaving and silkscreen monoprint artist, who produces work under the simple alias of “Lorenzo.” At 23 years old, this resident of Central New Jersey has recently been selected as one of the 2019 VSA Emerging Young Artists by the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. This highly prestigious award recognizes and showcases exceptional work of emerging young artists with disabilities. As an awardee, Lorenzo will travel to Washington, D.C. for an all-expenses-paid, multi-day professional development arts workshop with the other 14 artists chosen from all over the nation. His selected silkscreen monoprints will then travel the country for two years as part of the VSA “Connected” national exhibition.
