See local photographer Keara Wilson at the Corcoran!

Keara Wilson was raised in the Norview neighborhood in Norfolk, VA and employed by the City’s Emerging Leaders Program with Norfolk Arts for three summers.  She worked along side lead artists Barbara Kobylinska, Diana Caramat, Juan Jimenez, Mariella Haga and Mark Wroblewski.  Mark used Keara’s fathers image on the mural she helped him paint for the Norfolk Animal Care Facility.  One of Keara’s photographs was selected and featured on an Adams Billboard in Hampton Roads in 2016 as part of a joint program with Art Pop and Norfolk Arts.  The Animal Care Center mural and Keara’s billboard are pictured below along with some images of Keara during her employment as a Norfolk Emerging Leader.

Keara is graduating from the Corcoran in 2018.  She is instructing a middle school photography class and continuing to pursue her already successful photography career!  If you’re in the DC area April - May, be sure to stop in and see her work in this graduate exhibit:
