Tya Anthony

A4. From Partnership to Programming: Engaging Community to Impact Program Design (Panel Discussion)

Tya Alisa Anthony (she/they), Interdisciplinary Artist + Independent Curator, explores themes of social justice, human rights, and identity through sculptural painting, photography, and collage. Her artwork refocuses narratives of people of color while shedding light on the social, economic, and natural environments that surround her subjects. She reimagines historic narratives as an opportunity to explore alternate realities. Anthony is particularly interested in creating autonomous spaces for bodies of color and using core memories as a form of catharsis. Her work has been exhibited nationally. Anthony holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with honors from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. She currently resides in Denver, Colorado.
