Fall 2021 Billboards: Modern Mucha


Every other year, the NCMA holds a competition for college-student artists from or studying in North Carolina and selects the artwork of three students to be displayed on billboards in the Museum Park. In conjunction with the exhibition Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary, Modern Mucha showcases works that reimagine beauty in the art nouveau style and incorporate more contemporary and open notions of body positivity.

The billboards are by Ella Mackinson, a student from Charlotte studying at Pratt Institute; Pinghui Ren, studying at Fayetteville Technical Community College; and Kiersten Joyner, studying at East Carolina University. Each was inspired by the work of Mucha in different ways and have brought their individual experience to the images on display.
