May 3, 2022

Faisal Abdu’Allah, a professor and the Chazen Family Distinguished Chair in Art at UW–Madison, is a printmaker and a trained barber whose artworks explore race, culture and identity. His most recent work is a 7-foot limestone statue of himself that he designed and was created using a robotic tool and the skills of a master carver. It stands in front of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) at the corner of State and Henry streets in Madison.
