Sharif Bey’s Experience in Art Museums Led To A Successful Career in the Arts
Sharif Bey, associate professor in the School of Visual and Performing Arts, was featured in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s article “In ‘Excavations,’ Sharif Bey unearths his roots and shows what a Beltzhoover ‘art kid’ can do” and by WESA-FM (Pittsburgh).
Bey discusses his experience with art, saying, “I could browse the museum independently. I felt privileged to have that experience. Being recommended for the art classes ‘was the first accolade I ever received. It was the first time I was recognized…. My experience at the museum kind of launched this journey. I became forevermore an art kid.’”
