Artist Basil Kincaid will present his work in the Arlene Director Schnitzer ‘47 Art Gallery at the Middle School on Sept. 18. Schnitzer, who made the largest alumni donation in school history, made the event possible.

Middle School Visual Arts Department Head Katie Palmer ’98 chose to display Kincaid’s work in order to represent the diversity and inclusion discussed in the mission statement.

Kincaid’s work, which is heavily influenced by African-American and West African culture and traditions, seeks to promote inclusion and examines the effects of perception and prejudice on one’s sense of belonging.
