Abstract:
Lila Oliver Asher is a multimedia artist who discovered printmaking while teaching ceramics at Howard University. She discusses the differences between working with different mediums. She also explains the theme of mother and child in her artwork and the African influences that show up in her pieces. In World War II, she went abroad as a one-person show with the USO to do artwork for the bedridden servicemen in hospitals. She ends with the lasting effects on people she hopes her artwork and teaching has.
