Leticia Bajuyo shares with us her humble opinion of how to balance humility and confidence as a creative.

About the speaker
Leticia Bajuyo creates, lives, and teaches in southern Indiana where she is a Professor of Art at Hanover College. After earning a BFA in 1998 from the University of Notre Dame and an MFA in 2001 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, she moved to Hanover College to join the Art and Art History Department.
In her studio practice, Bajuyo pulls materials and objects from the mainstream cycle of capitalist consumerism and tailors them to dialogues about local or regional cultural identities. Bajuyo’s interests in perception began with her own history of growing up bi-racial in a small town on the border of Illinois and Kentucky. The dynamics of growing up partially displaced developed into a heightened interest in perception and the arbitration of value. An essential goal in Bajuyo’s artwork is the fostering of an awareness of the role of social amnesia on consumer behavior and the ethicality of these behaviors.
