Leah Limpert Walt is a painter, sculptor, and draftsman living and working in York, PA and received her BFA in Fine Art from Pennsylvania College of Art & Design. She has shown in New York City, Philadelphia, Bethlehem and throughout the lower Susquehanna Valley. Leah is an amazing artist and we're thrilled to have her back on campus as an instructor in two of our summer courses hosted by our Continuing Education department - " Color Lab" in our pre-college program and " Sculpture: Content, Process &  Experimentation" in our adult (ages 16 and up) program. We sat down with Leah to do a small Q&A to learn more about her and her influences as well as the courses she will be teaching at PCA&D.

Linda King Brown is PCA&D's Chair of Liberal Arts. She attended Hobart & William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York for her undergraduate education where she majored in English and minored in Art History, often researching and writing about the intersection of poetry and art. Her honors thesis focused on the work of poet John Ashbery and his connection to the Abstract Expressionist artists of the 1940s and 1950s, and another capstone project explored the poetry of William Carlos Williams and the work of the avant-garde artists of the early 20th century. During college, she lived in Florence, Italy for three months and gained an even deeper appreciation for art history. She then attended the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in Chicago for graduate school and earned a masters in journalism.

From there, she headed 30 miles out to sea and became a staff reporter for the Nantucket Island Inquirer & Mirror. Life eventually led her to PCA&D in the fall of 2005. Linda's love for the written word and for art history made her a good match for teaching writing, communications, and literature at an art & design college. 

Outside of teaching, Linda also writes poetry and has participated in readings at various local venues over the years. In 2010, she was appointed as PCA&D’s “poetry guru” and led the poetry selection committee for the Poetry Paths installation by Mary Szybist and PCA&D alums Root 222 in the College's portico.
