Bisa Washington is a sculptor, printmaker, and writer. Issues in her work focus around her heritage and identity as an African American woman. As a Geraldine R. Dodge Resident, she came to WSW to create a suite of handmade paper and mixed media prints inspired by the secrets kept by the women in her family for generations, resulting in the artist’s book, Promise Not to Tell. Bisa teaches Upper School Visual Arts at the Morristown-Beard School. She lives and works in Newark, NJ.
