An interdisciplinary artist and educator, Coleman is a professor of Studio Art and Africana Studies at Oberlin College. He describes his sculptural work and sound installations as “intentional gestures in homage and prayer.” Coleman states, “My work is centered upon themes of the crossroads: a focal point/threshold of challenge and transformation.
