Dewey Crumpler is associate professor of painting at the San Francisco Art Institute.[1] His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is featured in the permanent collections of the Oakland museum of California; the Triton Museum of Art, Santa Clara, California; and the California African American Museum, Los Angeles. Crumpler has received a Flintridge foundation award, National Endowment for the Arts fellowship grant, and the Fleishacker Foundation, fellowship eureka award. A digital image of his murals have been included in the  2017 Tate Modern’s exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art In the Age of Black Power in London.

Early life and education[edit | edit source]

Crumpler was born in 1949, and grew up in Hunters Point, a historically black neighborhood of San Francisco in California. The Former Minister of Culture of The Black Panther Party, Emory Douglas, was an early interlocutor.

Career[edit | edit source]

Seeking advice on a 1974 mural commissioned by the San Francisco Unified School District, a young Crumpler entered Elizabeth Catlett's tutelage, and his life was changed when she connected him with famed muralists José Clemente Orozco, and Pablo O’higgins.[2] Decades later, he appeared on a panel Honoring Catlett at the De Young Museum.[3] Crumpler became a professor of history and studio art at the San Francisco Art Institute where his notable students included Kehinde Wiley and Ionna Rozeal Brown.[1]
