Artist Bahar Behbahani Collaborates with Students to Create “Immigrant Flora: Rising Under”
The latest mural donning the wall in the lower-level Pfeiffer Wing at the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art is a true exercise in multidisciplinary collaboration. The site-specific drawing is part of an ongoing body of work by Bahar Behbahani called Immigrant Flora. Born in Iran and now based in New York City, Behbahani served as an artist-in-residence on the Ursinus campus for the project.
“I’m experimenting all the time,” Behbahani said of her process. “It’s not predictable or pre-planned. For this, I wanted to make it as non-linear as I could while feeding into a sense of belonging for everyone.”
