Calvin Brett


Do Good Fellow Calvin Brett has completed residencies at Elsewhere Museum in Greensboro, NC, the Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, NY, and Liberty Metals in Durham, NC. While studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts—Tufts, his work appeared in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He’s served on the Durham, North Carolina Public Art Committee and was a founding member of Pleiades co-operative Gallery. Brett’s work began as an intuitive expression documenting African American identity in response to larger social context. He is inspired by nature, African and American folk traditions, and the desire to reimagine these traditions in a contemporary context.
