The Whitney Museum in New York is currently showcasing the first solo museum exhibition by our very own artist and alumna Toyin Ojih Odutola. The show, "To Wander Determined," weaves together a fictitious narrative about two aristocratic Nigerian families, the House of Obafemi and the UmuEze Amara Clan, in a series of richly colored, intricately textured, life-size charcoal, pencil and pastel drawings.

Odutola received her Master of Fine Arts from CCA in 2012.
