Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).


Paul Rucker is a multimedia visual artist, composer, and musician. His practice often integrates live performance, original musical compositions, and visual art installation. For nearly two decades, Rucker has used his own brand of art making as a social practice, which illuminates the legacy of enslavement in America and its relationship to the current socio-political moment. His work is the product of a rich interactive process, through which he investigates community impacts, human rights issues, historical research, and basic human emotions.

Rucker's virtual visit is co-sponsored by LGBTQ+ Western, the Department of Art & Art History, the Department of Music, and the Western Gallery.

Rucker will present a series of virtual engagements with students and faculty at WWU throughout the week.

At 5 p.m. on April 22, Mr. Rucker will deliver a keynote open to the public, followed by a Q&A session to answer questions from the attendees.
