One of the world's leading authorities on the subject of African American Art, Prof. David C. Driskell is highly regarded as an artist and a scholar. Born in 1931 in Eatonton, GA, and grew up in North Carolina, David C. Driskell completed the art program in 1953 at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine. He received an undergraduate degree in art from Howard University in 1955 and an M.F.A. from Catholic University of America in 1962. He then pursued post-graduate study in art history at The Netherlands Institute for the History of Art in The Hague. Trained as a painter and art historian, Driskell works primarily in collage and mixed media, and printmaking. Prof. Driskell began his teaching career at Talladega College in 1955. He taught at Howard and Fisk Universities and served as Visiting Professor of Art at Bowdoin College, The University of Michigan, Queens College, and Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria. He joined the faculty of the Department of Art at the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1977, and served as its Chairperson from 1978-1983. In 1995, he was named Distinguished University Professor of Art and taught until his retirement in 1998. In 2001, the University of Maryland established the David C. Driskell Center to honor Prof. Driskell as an Artist, Art Historian, Collector, Curator, and Scholar by preserving the rich heritage of African American visual art and culture.
