Alumni POV

Mary Weatherford ’84

Visual artist Mary Weatherford ’84 initially came to Princeton on a theater scholarship. After joining Theater Intime and studying dance and architecture, she immersed herself in visual arts courses where she learned about art history, color theory, painting, and “careful looking.” Five years after graduation, she had her first project room show at PS1 in New York City.

In this Alumni POV, Weatherford recounts how her work has evolved to the present day, and how she is now combining neon light and paint on the canvas to represent “the complex symphony of human experience.”
