Studio Sessions: Musa Hixson


Welcome to the newest episode of Studio Sessions with guest Musa Hixson

Musa earned a BFA from Hampton University in Virginia, and an MFA from the Pratt Institute in 1998. The use of circles and spheres is a recurring theme in Musa’s sculptural pieces, and most of his images and forms, are drawn from elements found in indigenous cultures. The most prominent example of borrowed cultural imagery is the use of the dream catcher, which consistently appears in his work.

Listen as Musa explains his interest in the forms and images he selects for his pieces and the meanings that he ascribes to them.
