Nasher Artist in the News: Nina Chanel Abney
Nina Chanel Abney, whose first museum solo show will originate at the Nasher Museum in spring 2017, painted a spectacular mural in Coney Island, NYC, for the Mermaid Parade. She's also on the cover of Juxtapoz magazine: "Fire and energy radiate in Nina Chanel Abney's spellbinding work, which is timely, but not transient."
