CHICAGO (September 3, 2013) — Nnenna Okore, associate professor of art, is featured in the July/August 2013 issue of Sculpture magazine, a publication of the International Sculpture Center. In the piece, "Political by Nature," Okore discusses her process and approach to creating, her use of a wide range of materials, and her subtle approach to issues of poverty, social class, status, and wealth through her work.

Okore began teaching at North Park University in 2005, and returned this year after a sabbatical leave spent working and teaching on a Fulbright Scholarship at the University of Lagos in Nigeria.
