Anwar Floyd-Pruitt: Retina Record
August 10 – November 14, 2021
Location: MOWA | DTN
located inside Saint Kate—The Arts Hotel in downtown Milwaukee
Interdisciplinary artist Anwar Floyd-Pruitt is adept in collage, sculpture, drawing, and puppetry. After graduating from Harvard University with a BA in psychology, Floyd-Pruitt began his career in corporate marketing but found it unfulfilling. He returned to Wisconsin and is currently completing an MFA from University of Wisconsin – Madison.
He has created projects encouraging students to vote, a gun violence memorial sculpture garden, and a community-based learning program for at-risk and court-involved teens. His onsite installation for MOWA | DTN investigates the flexibility of identity—the way our self-image is impacted by how others view us.
