Armando Alleyne is an artist and a poet who graduated from The City College of New York with a B.A. in Education and Fine Arts, in 1983. Alleyne will walk us through his recently published monograph, A Few of My Favorites, and speak on the contexts and (hi)stories that urged him to develop and create his painted and collaged renditions of jazz musicians, Afro-Latin singers, boxers, family members and friends. Alleyne’s lifetime of painting tells a story of how we are subject to our city and how in it we can search for the tools to heal.
